  1. Statement of “future-proof” refers to support of current and upcoming technology standards including 14nm FinFET process technology, DirectX®12 and Vulkan™ API support, new I/O technology including DDR4, USB 2.1 Gen 2, and NVMe, and experiences such as VR. “Future-proof” statement is not meant to serve as a warranty or indicate that users will never have to upgrade their graphics technology again. Support of current and upcoming technology standards described above has the potential to reduce frequency of CPU upgrades for some users.
  2. As of November 10, 2016, VR readiness of the Radeon RX 470 GPU is based on the Oculus Rift minimum specification for graphics cards. See https://www3.oculus.com/en-us/rift/
  3. Discrete AMD Radeon™ and FirePro™ GPUs based on the Graphics Core Next architecture consist of multiple discrete execution engines known as a Compute Unit (“CU”). Each CU contains 64 shaders (“Stream Processors”) working together.
  4. Testing by AMD Performance Labs July 14, 2016 on the AMD Radeon™ RX 470 and Radeon ™ R7 370 on a test system comprising an Intel Core i7 5960X (3.0GHz) CPU, 16GB (DDR4-2666 MHz) memory and Windows 10. RX 470 driver used: 16.30-160628a-304042E. R7 370 driver used: 16.15.2211. PC manufacturers may vary configurations, yielding different results. The following games were run on the following settings: Project Cars 1080p (Ultra Quality, DS2X, 16xAF), Hitman 1080p (Max settings 16xAF), Overwatch 1080p (Epic presets). The RX 470 scored: 64.81 fps, 64.20 fps, and 90.16 fps respectively. The R7 370 scored: 33.271 fps, 31 fps, and 43.1 fps respectively. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers. Test results are not average and may vary.
  5. Testing done by AMD performance labs November 3rd 2016 on a test system comprising of an Intel Core i7 5960X CPU (@3.0 GHz), 16GB (DDR4-2666 MHz) memory, Crimson Driver 16.10.2 and Windows 10. The game Battlefield 1 was run at 1080p with ultra presets using the DX12 API. The ASUS STRIX RX 470 (4GB) and the Radeon™ R9 370 (4GB) scored 79.8 and 37.8 respectively. All scores are in average FPS. Scores based on a 3-run score average. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers.
  6. As of September 2016, certified for DisplayPort™ 1.4 HBR3 and ready for DisplayPort™ 1.4 HDR based on independent verification by DisplayPort™ testing authority. HDR content requires that the system be configured with a fully HDR-ready content chain, including: graphics card, monitor/TV, graphics driver and application. Video content must be graded in HDR and viewed with an HDR-ready player. Windowed mode content requires operating system support.
  7. HDR content requires that the system be configured with a fully HDR-ready content chain, including: graphics card, monitor/TV, graphics driver and application. Video content must be graded in HDR and viewed with an HDR-ready player. Windowed mode content requires operating system support.
  8. AMD’s product warranty does not cover damages caused by overclocking, even when overclocking is enabled via AMD hardware and/or software.
