Sapphire Radeon RX 470D NITRO Revealed, Beats GTX 1050 Ti

It looks like AMD will be fighting back pretty hard against NVIDIA’s recently release GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. There is a pretty substantial gap between the Radeon RX 460 and RX 470. It looks like AMD will be launching a “Radeon RX 470D” in China, at least for now. It is a cut-down version of the RX 470 with 28 out of the 36 GCN units enabled, which gives it 1792 steam processors, 112 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and 4GB of GDDR5 memory across a 256-bit wide memory interface.

The card will be clocked slightly higher than the RX 470 with a clock speed of 1266 MHz (boost clock) and the memory at 7.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective), compared to the 1206 MHz (boost clock) and 6.60 GHz (GDDR5-effective) speeds of the RX 470. The card is built to a lower cost as you can see from the shots above that it has a shorter PCB and a leaner cooler.


PCOnline got their hands on the card and tested it. Their tests show that it is indeed faster than the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, but slower than the RX 470. The card is also expected to be priced at 14% less than the RX 470. Check out the link below to see the full review.
