The new Radeon RX 460 is the lowest-end card on the new Polaris architecture that AMD has made, with 896 stream processors, 14 compute units, and 48 TMUs. We have the Polaris 11 GPU (not the Polaris 10 that powers the Radeon RX 470 and RX 480) on the Radeon RX 460, with the GPU clocked at 1090/1200MHz for base/boost clocks, respectively.




We have 4GB of GDDR5 RAM at 7GHz on a 128-bit memory bus resulting in 112GB/sec memory bandwidth.



SAPPHIRE has made some adjustments to the GPU regarding overclocking, with the boost GPU clock set at 1250MHz, a 50MHz increase from the stock clocks on the AMD reference design of the Radeon RX 460.



Detailed Look


Let's take a look at the box, and of course the SAPPHIRE Nitro Radeon RX 460 itself.




We have a decent looking box, but nothing flashy, just the way it should be at this price point.




The SAPPHIRE Nitro Radeon RX 460 in the flesh, rocking its Nitro cooler and dual fans.




The back of the card has some Nitro branding, which is a nice touch to a cheaper graphics card.




SAPPHIRE has provided 1 x DisplayPort, 1 x HDMI, and 1 x DVI port for display connectivity.




The custom Radeon RX 460 from SAPPHIRE uses a 6-pin PCIe power connector.




From the top of the graphics card, we can see some SAPPHIRE branding and some nice silver and black accents.




And finally, the bottom of the card where we can see the heat pipes running to the Polaris 11 GPU and VRMs.
