NVIDIA is looking to really secure the mid-range graphics card market with the impending release of its GeForce GTX 1050 and GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, priced at $109 and $139, respectively... but AMD isn't taking the mid-range battle sitting down.





AMD is reportedly preparing a most cost effective Polaris 10 GPU that will handle the fight against the GTX 1050 Ti, but with the Radeon RX 470 priced at $179... what will the price of the new card be?






VideoCardz is reporting that AMD is readying a Radeon RX 470D, which will rock 1792 stream processors. The first AIB partner to tease their RX 470D is XFX, with their new RX 470D Black Wolf graphics card, which looks pretty slick. XFX's website teased: "Brand new Polaris graphics Radeon RX470D non-public version, take you into the VR new horizons!"




Here's the specs expected on the XFX RX 470D Black Wolf, which has its GPU clocked at up to 1226MHz, while the 4GB of GDDR5 is clocked at 7GHz on a 256-bit memory bus.
