After the Radeon RX 480 now it’s the ideal opportunity for the low-mid range anticipated Radeon RX 470 and the Radeon RX 460 graphics cards from AMD camp. Both graphics cards promise to be the best in terms of price / performance and luckily we have here some clues that uncover the performance of these graphics cards for those people who want to buy a graphics card less than $170 dollars.
AMD Radeon RX 470 and Radeon RX 460: First performance tests
AMD Radeon RX 470
The AMD Radeon RX 470 would have a total of 2048 Stream Processors with 4GB (reference model) or 8 GB of GDDR5 @ 7000 MHz memory (custom models) with memory interface of 256 bits resulting bandwidth of 224 GB / s. In terms of performance, it would be faster than the Radeon R9 380X, one of the best graphics card to date in terms of price / performance ratio and would consume about 110W, specifically 80W less consumption compared to the R9 380X, so we have a more powerful, energy – efficient, fresh and economic graphics card promises to any game at 1080p resolution with high quality.
For this model, AMD promises that in games like Tomb Raider, Fallout 4, The Witcher 3 and Grand Theft Auto V. It will run these games to a resolution of 1080p and above 70 FPS with High graphics quality. A pretty impressive performance when you consider that the official price is $ 149.

AMD Radeon RX 460
AMD Radeon RX 460 is based on Polaris 11 formed with 896 Stream Processors attached to 2 GB of GDDR5 memory with a memory interface of 128 bits, being the highlight of everything that it has a Mini-ITX size, even slightly smaller than the Radeon R9 Nano and requires no power connector. In terms of performance, it could perform similar to a Radeon R7 370. Radeon RX 460 is built for eSports games (League of Legends, DOTA 2 or even Overwatch etc.), where we need an economic GPU with very low power consumption (less than 75W) that allow us to play at 60 FPS. Radeon RX 460 will also feature R9 Nano cooler.
AMD compares its Radeon RX 460 with the Radeon R7 260X, seeing as its new graphics Polaris is 70% more powerful in Dota 2, the same in League of Legends and 100% more potent in Overwatch reaching 60 FPS to enjoy a game of such features, and all with an energy consumption that would be only 75W through the use of GCN 4.0 architecture. The best thing about this graphics card is its price, only $ 99.
