AMD Announced the launch of Radeon RX 470 and RX 460
“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 Hundreds of millions of gamers have been relegated to using outdated technology.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.”
The AMD Radeon RX 480 is intended to run games at 1440p resolution with support for virtual reality. The Radeon RX 470 promises a good performance in games at a 1080p resolution thanks to Polaris 10 silicon supported by a 6-phase power VRM that comes to life through PCI-Express 6-pin connector, while the Radeon RX 460 is oriented for sports games such as the League of Legends, where we need an economic GPU with very low power consumption (less than 75W) that allow us to play at 60 FPS. This model does not require external power supply and offers three video outputs as DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI.
Unfortunately, neither the specifications of both models and the price was disclosed.
