MSI RX 470 Gaming X 8G Review


MSI RX 470 Gaming X 8G Testing:

Tom Clancy's The Division:

Tom Clancy's The Division faced an uphill battle to become the highest opening day grossing title in Ubisoft's history. Built as an open-world, third-person shooter video game, Ubisoft Massive developed the game with some assistance from Red Star Entertainment for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, with Ubisoft taking care of the publishing. Ubisoft Massive developed and built the Snowdrop game engine specifically for The Divison due to the need for an intelligent engine to manage the dynamic global illumination, destruction, detail, and visual effects.




  • DirectX 11
  • Ultra Preset
  • Shadow Quality = High
  • Post FX AA = Off
  • Temporal AA = Supersampling
  • Snow = Yes
  • Fog = Ultra
  • Anisotropic Filtering = 16x





Unigine Heaven 4.0:

Unigine Heaven Benchmark 4.0 is a DirectX 11 GPU benchmark based on the Unigine engine. This was the first DX 11 benchmark to allow testing of DX 11 features. What sets the Heaven Benchmark apart is the addition of hardware tessellation, available in three modes – Moderate, Normal, and Extreme. Although tessellation requires a video card with DirectX 11 support and Windows Vista/7, the Heaven Benchmark also supports DirectX 9, DirectX 10, DirectX 11, and OpenGL 4.0. Visually, it features beautiful floating islands that contain a tiny village and extremely detailed architecture.



  • 8x AA
  • Ultra
  • Tesselation = Extreme
  • Measurement = FPS






In Tom Clancy's The Division, once the RX 470 goes above 1920x1080, the FPS levels drop dramatically. That being said, you can enjoy this game at 50+FPS at 1920x1080. In the Unigine Heaven 4.0 test, MSI's RX 470 Gaming X 8G does well at 1920x1080, showing that to be the best resolution to use this card. Overclocking helps the FPS levels if you put in the tuning time.
