Sapphire NITRO Radeon RX 470 (8GB, Midrange)

Description

The SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon™ RX 470 is the next big thing in mainstream 1080p gaming.Custom-designed SAPPHIRE NITRO+ models come with an energy-efficient foundation of Polaris chip and a slew of added features in both cooling and aesthetics already seen in the NITRO+ RX 480 model. Compared to the previous R9 270 generation GPU, playing on the RX 470 means performance up to 2.4x better in latest titles such as Total War: WARHAMMER or DOOM. Engineered with power savings in mind, the 4th generation Graphics Core Next chip maintains the typical board power of around 170 W. Polaris-powered GPU-s also mean improved geometry engine, increased cache and native asynchronous shaders for unmatched efficiency in DirectX 12.

The SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon™ RX 470 cards all come equipped with 2048 GCN-based stream processors and 256-bit memory interface. The 8 GB model has a GPU boost clock of 1260 MHz (1121 MHz base) and memory clocked at 2000 MHz for 8 Gbps throughput.

Graphics cards

A video card, video adapter, graphics accelerator card, display adapter, or graphics card is an expansion card which generates output images to a display. Most video cards offer added functions, such as accelerated rendering of 3D scenes and 2D graphics, video capture, TV-tuner adapter, MPEG-2/MPEG-4 decoding, FireWire, light pen, TV output, or the ability to connect multiple monitors (multi-monitor). Other modern high performance video cards are used for more graphically demanding purposes, such as PC games.
Video hardware is often integrated into the motherboard, however all modern motherboards provide expansion ports to which a video card can be attached. In this configuration it is sometimes referred to as a video controller or graphics controller.

Graphics processing unit

i

Graphics processing unit

A graphics processing unit or GPU (also occasionally called visual processing unit or VPU) is a specialized circuit designed to rapidly manipulate and alter memory in such a way so as to accelerate the building of images in a frame buffer intended for output to a display. GPUs are used in embedded systems, mobile phones, personal computers, workstations, and game consoles. Modern GPUs are very efficient at manipulating computer graphics, and their highly parallel structure makes them more effective than general-purpose CPUs for algorithms where processing of large blocks of data is done in parallel. In a personal computer, a GPU can be present on a video card, or it can be on the motherboard, or in certain CPUs, on the CPU die.

Lithography
i

Lithography

Photolithography (or "optical lithography") is a process used in microfabrication to selectively remove parts of a thin film or the bulk of a substrate. It uses light to transfer a geometric pattern from a photo mask to a light-sensitive chemical "photoresist", or simply "resist," on the substrate.

Processor clock frequency
i

Processor clock frequency

In electronics and especially synchronous digital circuits, a clock signal is a particular type of signal that oscillates between a high and a low state and is utilized like a metronome to coordinate actions of circuits. Although the word signal has a number of other meanings, the term is here used for "transmitted energy that can carry information".

A clock signal is produced by a clock generator. Although more complex arrangements are used, the most common clock signal is in the form of a square wave with a 50% duty cycle, usually with a fixed, constant frequency. Circuits using the clock signal for synchronization may become active at either the rising edge, falling edge, or, in the case of double data rate, both in the rising and in the falling edges of the clock cycle.

Shaders are used to allow a 3D application designer to program the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) "programmable pipeline", which has mostly superseded the older "fixed-function pipeline", allowing more flexibility in making use of advanced GPU programmability features.

Memory Interface

The memory interface of a graphics card is the connection between graphics chip and graphics memory. The wider the memory interface, i.e. the more data lines available, the more data can be transferred to and from the graphics memory simultaneously. Figuratively one can imagine this as a data highway with several lanes.

Bonjour, est-ce que cette carte graphique fonctionne sur un processeur Intel core i7 qui date de 3 ans plus ou moins ou je dois acheter un processeur AMD ?

Le processeur et la carte graphique ne sont pas liés, ce qui importe c'est de posséder le port PCI-Express correspondant sur la carte mère de l'ordinateur, une chose à considérer également est l'encombrement dans le boitier du pc ( suivant quelle carte graphique, elle peuvent être très longues et ne pas entrer dans des boitiers bas de gamme ) une autre chose importante est de savoir si l'alimentation de la machine va pouvoir alimenter correctement votre carte graphique ( Certaines alimentations ne possèdent pas les connecteurs nécessaires à l'alimentation de cartes graphiques gaming...

Ist diese Grafikkarte besser oder die GTX 970..?

Meiner Meinung nach sind beide Karten momentan auf einem sehr ähnlichen Niveau. Langfristig gesehen sehe ich die Vorteile bei der AMD-Karte dank verbesserten Treibern, dem grösseren Videospeicher und den besseren Support von Low-Level-APIs. Ausserdem ist AMD's Freesync Technologie für Monitorhersteller lizenzfrei implementierbar im Gegensatz zu G-Sync von Nvidia, sodass Monitoranschaffungen günstiger sind. Jedoch sind momentan alle AMD RX Karten sowie Nvidias Gtx 1060 viel zu überteuert wegen der schlechten Verfügbarkeit. Ich würde noch etwas Geduld haben, denn vielleicht verbessert sich das Preis-Leistung-Verhältnis noch.

NITRO Radeon RX 470 (8GB, Midrange)

Eine sehr performante Karte für unter 300.- CHF, mit den richtigen Treibern sogar noch Luft nach oben

Leider mangels Verfügbarkeit nicht hier gekauft, obwohl bestellt und 3 Wochen gewartet..

Die Performance der Karte ist angesichts des Preises grossartig. In DOOM erreicht die Karte unter 1080p und Ultra Details zwischen 100-120fps (Vulkan), auch Far Cry 4 und Dying Light sind mit gut 80fps spielbar, einzig bei Rise of the Tomb Raider müssen vereinzelte Regler bedient werden um auf über 60 fps zu kommen, was allerdings am Spiel und dessen Programmierung liegt.

Das Wattman Tool ist übrigens noch mit Vorsicht zu geniessen: es ist ein wenig buggy, stürzt manchmal ab, die Oberfläche ist leicht ruckelig; hier merkt man das Beta Stadium der Software. Läuft ansonsten aber absolut perfekt. Der MSI Afterburner unterstützt die Karte noch nicht richtig, VRAM wird falsch angezeigt, Lüftergeschwindigkeit, GPU Takt etc. werden noch nicht ausgelesen. Dies ist allerdings nur eine Frage der Zeit bis zum nächsten Update.

Für einen Hardcore-Gamer wird diese GraKa nicht reichen. Für alle anderen denke ich schon :)

Also für diesen Preis eine 8GB GraKa kann man natürlich keine high end gamingkarte erwarten. Sie macht einiges mit und für mich ist sie sehr leise. Habe noch nicht viele spiele ausprobiert auf dem PC aber ich denke mit den meisten wird sie sicher hinterher kommen
