Featuring an overclocked core, overclocked memory, and based on Polaris architecture, the MSI Radeon RX 470 GAMING X 8G Graphics Card provides smooth gameplay at HD resolutions on DirectX 12, Vulkan, and e-Sports titles. The Radeon RX 470 is also compatible with HDR (high dynamic range) content so you can experience enhanced contrast and color.
The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs. There is a DisplayPort 1.3 output, an HDMI 2.0b output, and a dual link DVI-D output. Combined with AMD's Eyefinity, the GPU can provide an immersive gaming experience on multiple monitors. This GPU also has Aura RGB lighting with Modular Shroud so you can personalize your gaming style.
To keep cool, even when overclocked, MSI implemented their Twin Frozr VI cooler on this card. The Twin Frozr VI cooler uses two large fans to force air through the heatsink and dissipate heat and lower the GPU's internal temperature. Because this kind of cooler recirculates air back into the case, this card works best in cases that have unrestricted airflow. There are several LED lights on the GPU, which can be controlled individually by choosing any of the animation effects available in the MSI Gaming App. You can choose to have the LED lights respond to game sounds or music. You can pick a static color or have it breathing and flashing. Of course, you can just turn them off if you don't need them.
