AMD RX 470

AMD shared that about 85% of gamers use a graphics card in the price range of $100 to $300 globally. Moreover, the company wants to bring the excellent gaming experience to the majority.

On the contrary, it also seems that Nvidia is doing great at the top end with the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080. As these are the only option for gamers looking for the high-end gaming experience.

The Nvidia GTX 1060 is also doing great in India with better pricing, and Nvidia would not like to give AMD any room to grow market share in the discrete GPU market. We expect Nvidia to launch the Nvidia GTX 1050 and the GTX 1040 very soon in the market.

  1. check md computers they have RX 470 for 17K
    RX 480 for Preorder.
    Also I think Nvidia Fans getting butt hurt talking over pricing issue.
    Well GTX 1050 and 1040 will have only 128 Memory Bandwidth (GB/sec) available in 4 gb and 2 gb variants and cost will like 30k Plus.
    1060 cant compete with RX 470 as per specs and comparison.

  2. this is called the “CLASSIC AMD F*** UP” no wonder after the rx480 pricing fiasco, they did it again with rx 460. price is almost double in india for this bullshit card which cannot even beat gtx 950, which is priced rs.13k. nvidia please kick em in the balls with a gtx 1050 and gt1040 soon.

  3. When will we see nonreference RX 470 in the market? They don’t seem to be available online, are they available in the local market?

  4. RX 480 hasn’t been launched and thus mdcomputers cannot sell it in India and 30k is ridiculous people will import it from bhphotovideodotcom if it is priced as u say.Amd won’t do such a mistake while pricing. And don’t buy from those faudsters .And yeah wait for amd to launch it in India and then some months more till the price is right then buy.

  5. which card should be the Best but Not Overkill among these 3 cards for 1080p gaming, all AAA titles like Gta 5, AC syndicate etc at 60 fps highest settings ????
