Today we have new photos of two upcoming budget friendly Radeon RX 470 and Radeon RX 460 graphics cards from Sapphire and XFX camp. Specifically, two Sapphire Radeon RX 470 and Sapphire Radeon RX 460 Dual and XFX Radeon 460 Double Dissipation.
The AMD Radeon RX 470 mounts the Polaris 10 GPU core consisting of 2048 Stream Processors, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs at Base / Turbo frequencies of 926/1206 MHz () with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory @ 6600 MHz coupled with memory interface of 256-bits results in a bandwidth of 211 GB / s with a TDP of 120W, so it requires a PCI-Express connector for power.
Sapphire Radeon RX 470 Silver
This model is actually less striking of all with reference cooling system, but the color of the shroud changed from black to silver. Simple aluminum heatsink cooled by a blower style fan. Despite being the reference design it includes an aluminum backplate.
XFX Radeon RX 470 Double Dissipation
Now this model is interesting, equipped with an advanced cooling system where a radiator is crossed by at least three thick copper heatpipes backed by a configuration Dual fans and can you can also see LED lightning logo of XFX in white. On back mounted an elegant aluminum blackplate. XFX Radeon RX 470 Double Dissipation uses custom PCB with higher quality components.
Sapphire Radeon Dual RX 460
Finally the Sapphire Radeon RX 460 Dual, based on Polaris 11 formed with 896 Stream Processors, 48 and 16 ROPs TMUs at Base / Turbo frequency of 1090/1200 MHz (reference frequencies). It will be available in 2 / 4GB GDDR5 memory @ 7000 MHz memory with memory interface of 128 bits resulting in a bandwidth of 112 Gb / s, a maximum throughput of 2.2 TFLOPs and it will consume less than 75W, so does not require any power connector.
This model uses a striking long PCB. This will be the most economical graphics card. Judging from the packaging, the availability of this product may be limited to the Asian market.
