Everything You Need To Know About AMD’s RX 460


In my previous article on the RX 470, I talked about how the Polaris 10 architecture is perfect for 1080p gaming at budget prices, but the RX 460 shows a good amount of potential even after being a dirt cheap card. This card can do well for Esport gamers running on a budget, as other games need higher specs to run. The remaining money can be used on other Esport essentials instead, like a gaming mouse and keyboard setup. Plus the new Polaris 11 tech, help it to perform this well with super low power consumption. Gone are the days when AMD cards were power hungry and hotter than a blast furnace.


AMD recently introduced two more of its latest graphic cards at the Electronic Entertainment Expo or E3. The all-new AMD Radeon RX 470 and RX 460 are all set for a June 29 release. Like the RX 480 that was unveiled previously, the RX 470 and RX 460 are based on the 14nm FinFET Polaris architecture. The AMD Radeon RX 460, as its name suggests, will be a lower-powered graphic card that will be working at its best with lower end games such as ESports titles.

According to Wccftech,

AMD RX 460 2GB GDDR5 will cost around $99. And may be $129 for the 4GB version.

The RX-460 does pack a punch even with its low power consumption, cheap price and small form


Crossfiring a hundred dollar card isn’t a great idea as 2x RX-460 = Lesser performance than single RX-470

ESport games usually need lower specs so that they can be played by more people, but players need very high FPS (Around 150FPS) to get precise control and theres need of a costlier card, but the RX 460 changes that. It’s a cheap card that sells for only 99$ and works exactly half as well in benchmarks as its bigger brother, the RX 470. That is an amazing feat considering the other options are much more costlier. While Nvidia prides itself on being a ‘premium’ brand, AMD rakes in points for being ‘worth every penny’. And that I like very much.
