Yesterday we learned the final specifications of Radeon RX 460 and Radeon RX 470, and now AMD has revealed the prices of Radeon RX 460 and Radeon RX 470. Radeon RX 460 will go on sale for $99 and Radeon RX 470 will go on sale for $149. Doubtless, very reasonable prices for the segment of medium-low range.
AMD Radeon RX 460
Radeon RX 460 is formed of 896 Stream Processors and will have 2 GB of GDDR5 memory with a memory interface of 128 bits. It has a Mini-ITX size, it’s smaller that the Radeon R9 Nano and doesn’t take any power connectors. Radeon RX 460 is perfect for eSports games (League of Legends, DOTA 2 or even Overwatch etc.), being an economic GPU with very low power use (less than 75W) that can still run at 60 FPS. Radeon R 460 will also feature the R9 Nano cooler.
AMD Radeon RX 470
The AMD Radeon RX 470 is formed of 2048 Stream Processors with 4GB or 8 GB of GDDR5 @ 7000 MHz memory (8Gb VRAM in custom models only) with a memory interface of 256 bits resulting bandwidth in 224 GB /s. Consuming about 110W, this card is powerful, energy – efficient, clean and economic, and promises to make playing any game at 1080p resolution with high quality a reality.
Here is why AMD is going for such aggressive pricing:
“Gamers and consumers today are being left behind. Today only the top 16 percent of PC users can afford GPUs that deliver premium VR and gaming experiences. Hundreds of millions of gamers have been relegated to using outdated technology. Notebook gamers are often forced to compromise. And tens of millions more can only read about incredible PC VR experiences that they can’t enjoy for themselves. That all changes with the Radeon RX Series, placing compelling and advanced high-end gaming and VR technologies within reach of everyone.”
We still don’t know anything regarding the release date, but the rumoured date’s in August.
