RX 460 Review Compilation thread

Post by CA_Steve » Thu Aug 04, 2016 11:37 am

In brief: low-mid 1080p, 75W TDP, but OEM stock OC'ed cards may use more (100W+) at stress loads. HDMI 2.0b and Display Port 1.4(ready), DVI no longer includes analog VGA signals. Does not require PCIe Graphics power connector, but OEM designs may include it. Great single monitor idle power use. Multiple monitors may lead to non-idle memory clock and 4-20W higher power use in 2D. Dimensions stated as: a" x b" x c" are from mfgr websites - others are from reviews. Performance is generally between GTX 950 and GTX 960, with some games doing better than GTX 960 and some games do worse than GTX 950.

Roundups:

The rx 460 price is way for the performance it offers.
