AMD Radeon RX 460: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon RX 460

Summary

AMD started Radeon RX 460 sales 8 August 2016 at a recommended price of $86. This is GCN 4.0 architecture desktop card based on 14 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 2 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 7 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 112.0 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x8 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 170 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 75 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 21.58 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI Mobile.
