This is a mid-ranged RX 470 customized by SAPPHIRE. Built on Polaris architecture this Radeon 470 card features increased cache and native asynchronous shaders for unmatched efficiency in DirectX12, among other impressive technology. As part of SAPPHIRE’s NITRO+ series this RX 470 card comes equipped with 2048 GCN based stream processors and 256-bit memory interface. A custom design brings enhanced cooling to keep the 470 card cool and efficient when under pressure.
Embedded into this SAPPHIRE 470 graphics card is their new NITRO Boost switch that increases the boost clock and power limit for higher performance, to unleash the gaming performance of the card. Planning to overclock or looking for maximum performance? SAPPHIRE NITRO 470 cards come with an 8 pin power connector to plug in and enable Nitro Boost.
SAPPHIRE's acclaimed Dual-X Cooling is powered by two massive yet silent fans and state-of-the-art radiator design. The new form of our 95mm blades mean greater airflow and superior heatsink coverage for the RX 470 graphics card, at lower noise levels compared to standard cooling designs. These feature dual ball bearing fans, which have an 85% longer lifespan than sleeve bearings in our tests.
With the SAPPHIRE NITRO Gaming Series cards’ intelligent Fan Control III, the fans on the 470 card starts precisely at 52 degrees Celsius to smartly balance performance against fan noise.
After finding the traditional axial fan design was resulting in a higher temperature build up over time SAPPHIRE are now utlizing NITRO Free Flow. With the RX 470’s NITRO Free Flow (NFF) SAPPHIRE redesigned the airflow of the entire cooler and board, so that the hot air is expelled through the system fan instead, rapidly dissipating heat from the 470 GPU card.
If there’s a fan problem with this RX 470 from SAPPHIRE, you don’t have to return the entire card – SAPPHIRE or their channel partners will send out a replacement fan directly to you! All the SAPPHIRE NITRO + Radeon RX480 and RX470 fans use this Quick Connect system. That means they’re easy to remove, clean and replace, with just one screw holding them securely in place.
The SAPPHIRE NITRORX 470 gaming series cards come with Dual HDMI ports, specifically designed to work with VR. By having two HDMI ports, you can have both an HD monitor and cutting-edge VR headset running at the same time.
This RX 470 SAPPHIRE graphics card is more than another component; it’s the beating heart of your gaming system. It should look as good as it performs. With tasteful shroud design augmented by RGB LEDs, each card is practically a piece of art. You can even change the colours of the LED, for your own customized GPU design. This can be controlled via software using the latest version of SAPPHIRE’s award winning overclocking utility – TriXX 3.0, or through hardware by pressing the red button on the back of your SAPPHIRE NITRO 470 gaming series card. Users can choose from a set of five different modes including Fan Speed Mode, PCB Temperature Mode or the colourful rainbow mode. If you prefer, LEDs can also be turned off.

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.
