Posted by Heath Coop on Monday, May 1, 2017 - 8:00am
AMD’s newest Polaris architecture has arrived and there’s been a flood of new video cards based on it. One of Gigabyte’s entrees is the Radeon RX 570 Gaming 4G. Based on AMD’s latest GCN 4 14nm FinFET architecture, the Radeon RX 570 Gaming 4G is the highest performing graphics card in Gigabyte’s RX 580 line-up. It’s designed to deliver VR capability, increased level of performance, smooth VR, seamless support for next-gen gaming monitors, and CPU-free game streaming or recording. Furthermore, the model also supports AMD’s newest technologies such as Direct 12® and Vulkan™, FreeSync™, and Liquid VR.
Aorus RX 570 Gaming 4G utilizes 4GB of GDDR5 memory with 2048 stream processors and 32 compute units. It ships with 1280MHz core clock speed, and has 1750MHz memory clock speed which is connected to a high speed 256-bit memory interface. The 6+ multi-phases board design enhances the power efficiency and stability. Three direct touch pure copper composite heat-pipes deliver a heat dissipation capacity of triple fan cooler in a much shorter design.
The Aorus RX 570 Gaming 4G has a quite angular design dressed in black with dark orange accents. The Aorus logo on the side feature user adjustable RGB LED with 16.8M customizable color options and numerous lighting effects. An all metal backplate features a copper heatsink to help draw heat away from the GPU socket. Three DisplayPort 1.4, one HDMI 20.b, and one Dual-link DVI-D monitor ports deliver plenty of connection options. A single 8-pin power connector ensures maximum power delivery.
Gigabyte’s Take on the Aorus Radeon RX 570 Gaming 4G
WINDFORCE 2X COOLING SYSTEM
The WINDFORCE 2X cooling system features 3 pure copper composite heat-pipes, heat-pipe direct touch GPU, 90mm unique blade fan design, 3D active fan with LED indicators, stylish metal back plate, together delivering an effective heat dissipation capacity for higher performance at lower temperatures.
90MM UNIQUE BLADE FAN DESIGN
The airflow is spilt by the triangle fan edge, and guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface, effectively enhancing the air flow by 23% over traditional fans.
3D ACTIVE FAN WITH LED INDICATORS
The semi-passive fans will remain off when the GPU is under a set loading or temperature for low power gaming. The LED fan indicator on the top of the graphics card provides an instant display of the fan status.
The composite heat-pipes combines both thermal conductivity and phase transition for efficiently managing the transfer of heat between two solid interfaces which increases 29% of cooling capacity.
3 HEAT-PIPES DIRECT TOUCH
The pure copper heat pipes are shaped to maximize the direct contact area to the GPU.
With 16.8M customizable color options and numerous lighting effects, you could now choose the right scheme for your gaming rig through AORUS graphics Engine.
STYLISH METAL BACK PLATE
The metal back plate offers rigidity and protection to the structure, while adding a sleek, clean look to the product.
BUILT FOR OVERCLOCKING WITH 6+1 POWER PHASES
6+1 power phases on the card make the MOSFET working at a lower temperature and provide more stable voltage output.
ULTRA DURABLE MATERIALS
Engineered with the highest-grade chokes and capacitors, this graphic card delivers outstanding performance and durable system lifespan.
SMART POWER LED INDICATORS
Be alert when PCI-E voltage is unstable with the smart power LED indicator.
- LED ON: power cable disconnected
- LED OFF: stable power supply
- Blinking LED: abnormal power supply
AORUS Graphics Engine
The cutting edge intuitive interface allows you to tune the clock speeds, voltage, fan performance, and power target in real-time according to your own gaming requirement.
With a simple click on AORUS Graphics engine utility, gamers can easily tune the card to meet their various gaming requirements without any overclocking knowledge, while saving the hassle of manual adjustment.
