MSI RX 470 Gaming X 8G Testing:

Far Cry Primal:

Far Cry Primal is yet another iteration of this action-adventure series set in the Stone Age, with Ubisoft Montreal developing and Ubisoft publishing. The story revolves around Takkar, who starts off as an unarmed hunter and rises to become the leader of a tribe. Vicious wild animals, a lush landscape, and enemy factions to deal with make this one unique experience. Much like Far Cry 3, Far Cry Primal uses the Dunia 2 game engine.




  • DirectX 11
  • Global settings = Ultra





Battlefield 4:

Battlefield 4 is a first-person shooter developed by EA Digital Illusions CE and published by Electronic Arts. Battlefield 4 uses the Frostbite 3 game engine as a step up from the Frostbite 2 engine used in BF3. As the latest iteration of the Battlefield franchise, the graphics are improved. Following a set release cycle, Battlefield 4 was released for the PC in North America in October 2013, supporting DirectX 11 and now after multiple patches, AMD's Mantle API.


  • DirectX 11
  • Ultra Preset





In Far Cry Primal, MSI's RX 470 Gaming X 8G sticks pretty close performance-wise to the GTX 970. When you crank up the clock speeds, the gap widens a bit more. That being said, the robust overclocking on this card drives performance into the same FPS range as the 4GB RX 480. In Battlefield 4, there is no doubt that you can run 60+ FPS with the MSI RX 470 Gaming X 8G at 1920x1080. Stepping up to 2560x1440 in both games drops delivered FPS performance a bit, but the card still delivers playable FPS levels.
