As the review on the VisionTek RX 470 is been done, something fastened my inquisitiveness. A TDP of 120w is on the RX 470 and the 135 watts Arctic Cooling Accelero S3. i assume that you are getting where i’m going. A passively cooled RX 460 is been showed of by XFX and on the point i was aware of the particular scene to be happen. Surely, it is nothing to be cheered upon on a low end passively cooled card but it will be interesting for the current 1080p. So from the source video below you might be surprised because i was at that moment by the performance. Rather than being on the 950Mhz the card was close to target boost speed of 1226 Mhz with the reference cooler.
But the cooler is so clunky and massive that it definitely is for a single card configuration for the one who don`t intend to trade parts often. Multi hour gaming sessions with the temp being good. If you might want things to be much cooler you can lift up the case fans just a bit or attach an upgrade kit for the cooler that come`s up with a single fan for even more extreme temperature changes.
