First South African prices for the AMD RX 480 revealed built upon Polaris architecture and 14nm FinFET. AMD announced the RX 470 back in June, claiming that it delivers “refined, power-efficient HD gaming.” Find out how much an RX 470 will cost you in South African and if it delivers the price versus performance ratio you are looking for.


Wootware is the first local retailer to reveal their prices for the RX 470 with the cheapest one selling for R3,999.

  • Powercolor Radeon RX 470 Red Devil 4GB (OC) – R3,999
  • Asus STRIX Radeon RX 470 4GB (OC) – R4,199
  • Sapphire Radeon RX 470 4GB (OC) – R4,199
  • Gigabyte G1 Gaming Radeon RX 470 4GB (OC) – R4,999
  • Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 470 8GB (OC) – R5,266

At the time of writing all the cards show as “Out of stock” and only one has a stock ETA. According to the product listing on Wootware, Powercolor “Red Devil” RX 470 will be in stock on 19 August 2016 and there is “Limited Pre-Order Stock Available”.

We will update this article when more local pricing becomes available.

Specifications and performance

The Specifications below is for the stock RX 470, while the cards listed above are aftermarket versions. What this means is each of the five RX 470’s from Wootware has a higher Base and Boost clock speed (noted as “OC” in my list above), with the rest of the specifications remaining the same.

  • Base clock: 926MHz
  • Boost clock: 1206MHz
  • Memory: 4GB GDDR5
  • Memory Clock: 1750 MHz (8.0Gbps)
  • Memory Interface: 256bit
  • Stream Processors: 2048
  • TDP: 120w

The RX 470 delivers very impressive performance at 1080p in a range of titles. According to EuroGamer’s in-depth review, the card’s performance is very close to that of the RX 480 and equals a GTX 970 in most cases.
