AMD Radeon R9 M470

The AMD Radeon R9 M470 is an upper mainstream mobile graphics card based on the familiar Bonaire chip. This 28 nm GPU uses 768 shaders (12 Compute Units CU) and is based on the second generation of the GCN architecture (Graphics Core Next). The maximum memory size is 4 GB (GDDR5, 6000 MHz effective) and it is attached via 128-bit interface. Compared to the technologically identical predecessor card Radeon R9 M380 (1000 MHz), the R9 M470 could have a slightly higher clock.

Contrary to the R9 M300 series, the number of products within the R9 M400 series is currently limited to three (M485X, M470X and M470), but this will probably change with the launch of the new Polaris architecture in Q2 2016.
