AMD Radeon R9 M470X: specs and benchmarks
AMD started Radeon R9 M470X sales 14 May 2016. This is GCN 2 architecture notebook card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 4 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 96 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface.
It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 12.95 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti.
Of Radeon R9 M470X's architecture, market type and release date.
Radeon R9 M470X's general performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU base clock, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of Radeon R9 M470X's performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider its benchmark and gaming test results.
Compatibility, dimensions and requirements
Information on Radeon R9 M470X's compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus, if the video card is inserted into a slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
Parameters of memory installed on Radeon R9 M470X: its type, size, bus, clock and resulting bandwidth. Note that GPUs integrated into processors don't have dedicated memory and use a shared part of system RAM.
Video outputs and ports
Types and number of video connectors present on Radeon R9 M470X. As a rule, this section is relevant only for desktop reference video cards, since for notebook ones the availability of certain video outputs depends on the laptop model.
APIs supported by Radeon R9 M470X, sometimes including their particular versions.
Non-gaming benchmark performance of Radeon R9 M470X. Note that overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
Let's see how good Radeon R9 M470X is for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in frames per second. Comparisons with game system requirements are included, but remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect reality inaccurately.
This video card matches 86% minimum and 73% recommended requirements of all games known to us.
