I just like to know if RX470 support the directgma feature. If so is there a way to verify if it is working. Thanks.

Re: Does RX470 support directgma

RX470 is a consumer board and not a workstation card. DirectGMA is specific to Workstation boards.

Re: Does RX470 support directgma

Thanks fsadough. This meant  should save up for the Radeon Pro W4100. I am a IRONCAD user and was wondering  if there are real benefits to go down this route. I just replaced my 1700 cpu with 1700X, just to have a bump on base speed and max turbo clock.

Radeon Pro WX4100 supports DirectGMA and is currently cheaper than RX470

Re: Does RX470 support directgma

If you need the exact board like RX470 in workstation version, it would be Radeon Pro WX5100

Re: Does RX470 support directgma

I got my RX470 4GDR5 to replace a R7 370 4GDR5 for 260AUD, currently the WX4100 is about 479AUD while the WX5100 is about 615AUD. WX3100 is about 309AUD but it may not make the cut  as I am using a dual 1080 display. Usually work on less than 2000 parts and about a 50 sheet associated drawing file. I've done a specviewperf on the RX470 and drops off on the SNX-02/SW-03  test compared with other modules of the specviewpref. So I am assuming that both SNX-02/SW-03 benefit from directgma.

One reason why I stick with AMD cards is that I am able to run my Adobe Illustrator 9 while the competitor GPU won't since 400 series above. I do appreciate your patience on my query.
