The market designer in the graphics world, AMD on Monday introduced a ridiculously budget oriented Radeon RX 460 designed for the video game maniac’s. It delivers the high frame rates DirectX 9-based shooters and action games demand, but also handles the more robust next generation DirectX 12 and Vulkan API’s.
Designed and architected around AMD’s fourth generation GCN architecture the Radeon RX 460 offers a staggering performance of 2.2 TFLOPS with the support for 1080p frame rates at 1080p. It is designed to remain both calm and cool, credits to its Polaris architecture, which adapts to card temperature and reduces the heat woofing out of the fan by reducing its operation during low GPU demands.
“The Radeon RX 460 delivers the perfect balance of price, power, performance and package size- the four pillars of modern GPU’s,” was quoted as saying by Raja Koduri, chief architect in the Radeon Technologies Group at AMD.
“The Radeon RX series is built on architecture designed for extraordinary power efficiency and is especially well suited to desktop gaming PC’s targeted at mainstream price points”, he added. “Radeon RX 460 users will enjoy an optimized software and hardware graphics card solution ideal for both e-sports and iCafe systems.”
The AMD Radeon RX460 is available now for 109 US Dollars.
