MSI GAMING X Radeon RX 470

This Radeon RX 470 has been fortified with MSI’s GAMING X cooling technology, giving it a customized design and enhanced performance ratings. This is the cheaper of the two MSI 470 graphic cards, but it still possesses speeds capable of dominating most games. Built for those intense gaming sessions you can be sure the 470 GAMING X cooling system is up to the task, plus the design technology is not just innovative but stylish.

LED Embedded MSI 470 GPU

Through the MSI Gaming App each LED on the RX 470 GAMING can be controlled individually and customized using the various animation effects. These animations range from responding to game or music sounds to a breathing effect - of course they can always be turned off.

Advanced GPU Cooling Technologies

The GAMING X 470 from MSI has various aspects to help keep this gaming GPU as cool as possible. Every detail of this intricate heat-sink plays an essential part in providing a cool and quiet gaming experience.

Airflow Control

This RX 470 utilizes advanced aerodynamics, Airflow Control Technology directs more air directly onto the TWIN FROZR VI heat pipes. The special deflectors on the heat sink enlarge the surface area, creating lower temperatures and better gaming.

Smooth Heat Pipes

Embedded within the GAMING X RX 470 GPU are copper heat-pipes running through the cards fins. These pipes have been made with a smooth square shape to maximize heat transfer from the surface of the copper base plate.

Solid Base-Plate

To temper the heat generated by a powerful GPU, MSI's GAMING X series graphics cards use a solid nickel-plated copper base plate. The base plate catches the heat from the GPU and transfers it to the heat pipes for dissipation - further increasing the cooling.

Dual TORX Fan GPU Power

TORX fan technology built into the GAMING X RX 470 works in teamwork with TWIN FROZR VI to achieve new levels of cooling. The fans design generates 22% more air pressure for supremely silent performance when gaming. The fans also feature double ball-bearings for a strong and lasting core for years of smooth gaming - also helps with noise elimination.

During intense gaming or benchmarking

Fans Stop
Completely silent during idle, multimedia or light gaming

Clever Cooling with MSI RX 470

MSI released this technology in 2008 and it has since become an industry standard among graphics cards, including this Radeon RX 470. FROZR will eliminate fan noise by stopping the fans in low-load situations, meaning you can stay focused on your gaming, streaming or other media without the noise of spinning fans.


The best environment for minimal fan noise

Balance between in-game performance and silence

Max performance from higher clock speeds and fan performance

Control your GAMING-X 470

This app from MSI allows you to access single click performance profiles that can unlock extra potential for gaming, or keep your RX 470 card silent during light sessions. It also features the EyeRest tab, giving you easy access to image quality improving technology. The LED control tab gives you full control over your MSI 470 GAMING X LED's to set the mood.


Control your RX480 GAMING-X

This technology belongs to MSI but is recognized throughout the world of graphics cards overclocking. It displays hardware performance and grants you complete control over your Radeon RX 470 GPU. Plus it grants the ability to customize fan profiles, record videos / games and is great for benchmarking.

2016 has been chock-full of new graphics cards based on cutting-edge architectures that have given PC gamers plenty to be excited about. Both AMD and Nvidia have whet our appetites with cards such as the RX 480, GTX 1060, GTX 1070, GTX 1080 and Titan X, yet with manufacturer suggested retail prices starting at $199 and soaring to well beyond $1,000, there arguably hasn't been a GPU with genuine mainstream attraction.

4GB MSI Radeon RX 470 GAMING X 4G, 14nm Polaris, PCIe 3.0, 6600MHz GDDR5, 1242MHz Boost, 2048 Streams, DP/HDMI/DVI-D DL is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, powerful card for a reasonable price As far as I could tell from looking at reviews and specs the RX470 offers the best value for money amongst the current crop of cards and this MSI version seems to be the one to get. It's nicely packaged - the mini-cd didn't work, but I downloaded the drivers from MSI easily enough and the card was easy to install. I can't compare the performance to anything equivalent, but it is ever so quiet and a massive performance gain over my outgoing Radeon HD6870 so I'm happy :)
