With the new RX 470 Red Dragon V2 4GB

Powercolor has unveiled a new Radeon RX 470 4GB graphics card, the Powercolor RX 470 Red Dragon V2, which is also the cheapest Radeon RX 470 4GB currently selling at Newegg.com for US $159.99.

Featuring the same simpler cooling solution as the Powercolor RX 480 Red Dragon, which we caught earlier and which is still the cheapest (US $189.99) and only Radeon RX 480 selling belo US $199.99, the new Radeon RX 470 Red Dragon V2 4GB also has a factory-overclock as an added bonus.

As noted, the new RX 470 Red Dragon V2 4GB uses a simple cooler with a single center placed 100mm fan and large heatsink connected to the copper core with two copper heatpipes.

Despite having a simple cooler, the Powercolor RX 470 Red Dragon V2 comes with factory-overclocked settings which push the GPU boost to 1210MHz, while 4GB of GDDR5 memory, paired up with a 256-bit memory interface, is clocked at 1650MHz (6.6GHz effective). The card still needs a single 6-pin PCIe power connector and comes with usual DVI-D, HDMI, and three DisplayPort outputs.

In case you missed, the Radeon RX 470 is based on AMD's Polaris 10 GPU and features 2048 Stream Processors, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

The Powercolor RX 470 Red Dragon V2 4GB is currently on sale at Newegg.com for US $159.99, making it the cheapest RX 470 on the market, but the price should go up to US $179.99 after the sale is done.
