Sapphire today announced three new Radeon RX 470 cards today, the RX 470 Platinum Edition OC and the RX 470 NITRO+ (4/8GB).
The Radeon RX 470 Platinum Edition OC sticks to AMD’s reference design with an unchanged PCB and a very small factory overclocked engine boost clock of 1216 MHz. The memory on the other hand is overclocked to 7.00 GHz as opposed to the reference 6.60 GHz. What does set the card apart though, is the attractive silver finish cooler shroud and a silver + black backplate.
The Radeon RX 470 NITRO+ comes in 4GB and 8GB variants, with the two being slightly different from one another as far as clocks go. The 4GB RX 470 NITRO+ features a 1143 MHz core and a 1260 MHz boost clock, while the 8GB variant comes with a 1121 MHz core and 1260 Mhz boost. Memory is clocked higher on the 8GB variant though, at 8.00 GHz. Both cards utilize the company’s Dual-X cooling solution, also seen on the RX 480 NITRO+ series.
