Looks like the RX 470 is another amazing card from AMD but the pricing makes absolutely no sense right now. It starts at $179 which is only $20 cheaper than an RX 480 reference card but most of the cards are going for $200+. Now they are AIB partner cards but the pricing is just too close to the RX 480 cards IMO. The Sapphire Nitro+ 4gb RX 470 is $209 which is only $10 less than the same exact card but the RX 480 model. I don't know if it is because the RX 480's are out of stock everywhere so retailers/AIB partners are trying to milk it or if this is going to be the pricing from here on out.
The card does seem to be a little bit of a better overclocker than the RX 480 and one AIB card is getting a 20% gain in FPS over the reference 470 model by overclocking it.
