Having come out with an exceptional graphics card with the AMD Radeon RX 480 about a month ago, AMD has today launched the Radeon RX 470. Utilising AMD’s new Polaris GPU microarchitecture, the Radeon RX 470 is a 120 W TDP card that uses a different GPU than the beefy RX 480. Priced at $149 for the 4 GB GDDR5 unit and $179 for the 8 GB GDDR5 unit, the Radeon RX 470 might appear to have taken a performance hit but early benchmark numbers seem to have a different tale to tell. The Radeon RX 470 4GB GDDR5 variant starts from Rs.15,990.

AMD Radeon RX 470 India Price
We are yet to receive the official Indian pricing but we can estimate them to be somewhere in the vicinity of Rs.13,500 for the 4 GB SKU and Rs.16,200 for the 8 GB SKU. While everyone is well aware of AMD’s unfortunate Indian pricing for the RX 480 which underwent two revisions one after the other, we hope AMD will price the Radeon RX 470 in line with general trends. Also, the passing of the GST bill should be good news for both manufacturers as well as consumers, however, it will be quite some time before the GST does get implemented.
UPDATE: Official Indian pricing for the Radeon RX 470 4GB variant is Rs.15,990. Non-reference AIB cards will cost extra.
