AMD Radeon RX 460 4GB Graphics Card Review

Post by Apoptosis » Mon Aug 08, 2016 9:07 am

Last week the AMD Radeon RX 470 4GB graphics card debuted at $179 to help bring AMD’s new Polaris GPU technology down to lower price points. The AMD Radeon RX 480 video card runs $199 for the 4GB model and $249 for the 8GB model, so it was good to see what AMD had to offer mainstream gamers. If $179 is still too much to justify spending on a graphics card for your system we have great news for you. AMD is releasing the Radeon RX 460 today and pricing starts at just $109 for 2GB models. Read on to see how the XFX Radeon RX 460 4GB Double Dissipation Graphics Card performs!

The msrp is a joke. With all these cards there is some lower price on paper but realy they all cost more. As for this rx460, the prformence is pathetic. This piece of garbage isn't worth any money, since it doesn't have decent frame rates at 1080p.

LOL now be nice. Totally agree about the card. I have been saying for years I just don't get AMD anymore. Used to be performance and price, now it's more like we are just gonna suck money outta people for no real reason. i dunno, in the video card market it has felt like that for a long time though. Even nvidia releases cards now that are not much better than a previous gen so i wait quite a few gens until I try to upgrade. Still running a GTX 660.

When bought for £90, the RX 460 is actually pretty good value, coming in a full £20 cheaper than the lowest-priced GTX 1050s. However, the unit on test here represents part of the range that’s more expensive, and is priced almost equally to the GTX 1050.

So the answer to the “should I buy” question comes down to how much you’re willing to pay. If you’re willing to pay over £100, buy the GTX 1050 instead. If your budget can’t stretch beyond £90 (or you prefer AMD’s excellent Radeon software), the RX 460 is a good buy.
