MSI RX 470 Gaming X 4G review – 2k gaming on budget

AMD continues to add members to its new Polaris platform and today they’ve launched the RX 470 chipset. Radeon RX 470 opens the Polaris 11 family, while RX 480 is the single member (for now) of the Polaris 10 series. Even if the naming is upwards, the performance of the chips is vice-versa.

This article is covering the MSI RX 470 Gaming X 4G review, the first card that came to our office. Yet you can also check the RX 470 CrossfireX results in this article.
