Clock Speeds

We saw in our RX 470 review how the listed clock speed and actual one didn't quite match up, so we need to doff our caps to Sapphire for managing to have a card which actually runs at the speed they claim it does. It's not as common as you might imagine. This should really make a difference in our graphs too.

That is a sexy card and would be perfect for a LAN rig aiming for 1080P.Quote

From what I read Tom they designed it so that the back plate would get cooling too. And it works, apparently. But yeah, that may explain the closed design.Quote

Personally I prefer closed design GPU's, Just looks so much cleaner than having everything on show Quote
