The First Hard Swap Detachable Fan Design: XFX patented fan design lets you change or upgrade fans in a snap.
Fans are an essential function of a graphics card and directly affect it's performance, and even though we use the best fan's on the market the performance will decrease over time. In the past it was difficult if not impossible to replace GPU fans on your own but now with XFX's Hard Swap technology, you can upgrade your fan in an instant. We even offer different upgrade option for higher performance or colour LED options for customization.
High Performance Unibody Heatsink: Enhances thermal efficiency by 40%.
The XFX RX 470 RS series features our all new Unibody VRM Heatsink construction enable direct transfer to the primary heatsink and heatpipes. This unique combination of material and construction enhances thermal efficiency by a total of 40%.
Custom XFX Aluminium Backplate Design: Protects your GPU while providing additional cooling overall.
GPUs are one of the most important, complex and delicate pieces of hardware in your computer and as a game, nothing is as important and the slightest bend can drastically affect the performance of your graphics card. But that's a thing of the past because XFX's solid backplate keeps the card strong and secure, eliminating card bend. Graphics cards also emit some heat from the back as well which rises up and affects other components but our cool aluminium backplate can absorb that heat and keep the overall case cooler.
Enhanced VRM and Memory Cooling: Cooling technologies don't stop at just the GPU.
After countless hours of research, development, and testing our engineers have developed all new VRM and Memory cooling technology, reducing temperatures VRM by up to 30' C and GDDR temperatures by 20' C, all while reducing dB noise by an additional 5%. Best in class for the GPU enthusiast.
All New Composite Heatpipe Technology: We combined technologies to create the first super heatpipe.
The new composite heatpipe design used in the XFX Radeon™ RX 470 RS combines the technologies of both Liquid and Capillary Action heatpipes into one. Doing so allows us to increase the total heatpipe surface area by 30% which tremendously increases the thermal efficiency.
XFX True Clock Technology: Always running at the best speeds.
Software controlled clock speed optimizers can be hindered by overall computer performance, heavy loads can cause it to misread the maximum potential clock speed of the graphics card at any given moment. XFX's True Clock however is hardware controlled clock speed performance optimization so it's always running at peak performance all the time.
All New Zero Noise Auto Load Sensing Fans: Power when you need it and quiet when you don't.
XFX fans are equipped to run at the highest possible performance, while our Zero DB Fan System will also keep your fans running at efficient RPM in order to minimize annoying fan noise by lowering RPM all the way down to Zero RPM. When the heat is on during intense gaming, our fans will speed up as needed.
Designed for Vulkan Cross Platform Graphics: The next generation graphics API from Khronos.
Vulkan is the new generation, open standard API for high-efficiency access to graphics and compute on modern GPUs. This ground-up design, previously referred to as the Next Generation OpenGL Initiative, provides applications direct control over GPU acceleration for maximized performance and predictability.
AMD FreeSync Technology
No stuttering. No tearing. Just gaming. Gaming shouldn't be a choice between choppy gameplay and high performance.

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.
