AMD had a lot to talk about the RX 480 when it debuted a while ago. The AMD RX 480 has taken the internet by storm due to its pricing and it excellent performance. AMD promised and touted the AMD RX 480 to deliver a premium VR experience and yes it delivers. However, at E3 2016, AMD’s Lisa Su showed off the RX 460 and RX 470 on stage without any cooler revealing the bare PCBs of these cards. Since then these cards by AMD haven’t received the same type of hype as their elder brother, the RX 480.
As we have discussed earlier, Nvidia may have their GTX 1050 on their list and is waiting for AMD to strike. The RX 470 and RX 460 will play a major role for those gamers who are willing to try out PC gaming, whether it be console gaming or other types of gaming as their background. Offering excellent performance with flexibility should be AMD’s goal here with their two new GPUs.
AMD recently had a release event held in Australia yesterday where they revealed the specifications of their RX 470 and RX 460. Sure these cards aren’t targeted for hardcore maxed our games but sure should be able to provide good FPS at 1080p with High/Ultra settings.
The AMD RX 470 comes with 32 Compute Units, 4GB of GDDR5 VRAM, 256 Bit Bus, with 4th Gen GCN, all powered under a single 6-pin connector. And yes the card sure supports HDR with the addition of DisplayPort 1.3/1.4.
Next up, we have the RX 460 which is geared towards the E-Sports Market, it’s a good consideration by AMD since the E-Sports Market is continuously growing. The New RX 460 is also very power efficient allowing the absence of a 6-pin connector throughout. Nope, no power connector needed! The Card has a 128-bit Memory Bus size, comes with 2GB of GGDR5 VRAM, and supports HDR as its elder brothers thanks to Displayport 1.3/1.4.
Anyways we still don’t have any more information on these GPUs but do be sure to check back if we have any more information on these cards.
