Radeon RX 470 And RX 460 Arrive Promising 1080p 60FPS Gaming For As Little As $99

Recommended Posts

AMD’s Radeon RX 480 launch might be grabbing all the headlines today, but it’s also accompanied by the first official details on its lower-end Radeon RX 460 and RX 470 graphics cards. Both the RX 460 and RX 470 are available to buy soon, and like their older sibling they offer some fantastic price to performance.

A big song and dance has been made by AMD about the comparatively cheap pricing of its Polaris graphics cards and the RX 470 and RX 460 certainly continue the trend. The base model of the RX 460 retails for as little as $99 for the 2GB variant, while just $20 more will net you a graphics card with 4GB VRAM for $119.

"Gamers and consumers today are being left behind," said Raja Koduri, senior vice president and chief architect, Radeon Technologies Group, AMD. "Today only the top 16 percent of PC gamers are purchasing 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 Hundreds of millions of gamers have been relegated to using outdated technology.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."

AMD reckon the RX 460 is the perfect eSports graphics card, which is a polite way of saying it's very affordable and most definitely not top end. In terms of brute force performance it's somewhere in the region of a GeForce GTX 960, perhaps a little less, but it'll certainly pack a sizeable punch at online titles in 1080p. Those just looking at playing a bit of Overwatch,Battlefield 4, or DOTA 2 can pick this up for less than $100 and slot it into their existing rig, turning it into a gaming machine.

The Radeon RX 470 meanwhile is quite a jump up, and on paper it looks as if it's not too far off the RX 480. While the 480 is touted as VR capable though, the RX 470 will likely struggle but is perfect for delivering console beating visual quality at 1080p. Be warned that 1440p is probably out of your grasp with this graphics card though.

Both cards are remarkably cheap, but we'll have to see them in action to get a real feel for their performance. One thing is for sure - AMD is going in hard on the low-end of the market. This should force Nvidia's hand so expect to see plenty lesser GeForce GTX 10 series graphics cards in the next few months.
