PowerColor has launched a more affordable version of the RX 470 Red Dragon card that it unveiled earlier. The new Radeon RX 470 Red Dragon V2 graphics card (AXRX470 4GBD5-3DHDV2/OC) features a single-fan cooling solution instead of the dual-fan cooling solution found on the PowerColor Radeon RX 470 Red Dragon.
The cooling solution comprises of a 100mm fan, an aluminum fin-heatsink, two copper heat pipes with direct contact with the GPU, and a copper core. Despite featuring a single-fan cooling solution, the card comes factory overclocked with the same 1210 MHz engine clock (with boost) and the 4GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6.60 GHz.
Based on AMD’s new Polaris 10 “Ellesmere” silicon, the card features a total of 2048 stream processors, 128 Texture Mapping Units, and 32 Raster operation units. The card comes with various AMD technologies such as Eyefinity, App Acceleration, HD3D, CrossFire support, HD Media Accelerator, PowerPlay, PowerTune, Mute Fan, FreeSync, Radeon VR Ready Premium, Vulkan, and Virtual Super Resolution. Display connectors include a dual link DVI-D, DisplayPort x3, and an HDMI port. The card supports resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 through the DisplayPorts as well as the HDMI port.
The card draws power using a 6-pin PCI Express power connector and PowerColor recommends that your system have at least a 450W power supply. In terms of dimensions, the card measures 255 x 128 x 38mm.
The PowerColor Radeon RX 470 Red Dragon V2 graphics card is expected to be priced around $170 in the US.
