Not everyone needs a GTX 1080. ****, not everyone needs and RX 480, either, and if you’re gaming habits are less… intensely demanding of our hardware, then the new RX460 is probably your perfect price-performance sweet spot. Sapphire’s just released two new versions of AMD’s latest – the Nitro Radeon RX 460, and the plain old RX 460.
While the Sapphire RX 460 is pretty much unchanged, the Nitro card gets some after market loving. It boasts a factory overclock to 1250Hz, two 90mm fans in Sapphire’s Dual-X shroud, fan-monitoring software – as well as the ability to switch out fans – and an LED PCB and a fan backlight by of some bling. All of this is backed up by 4GB of GDDR5 memory operating over a 128-bit interface.
The card also features HDMI 2.0b, DisplayPort 1.4, and a DVI connection.
The non-Nitro version has 2GB of GDDR5, a 1210MHz core clock, and similar Dual-X cooling. The Nitro RX 460 4GB card retails for $239.
