GeForce GTX 460 X2 

Released March, 2011
  • 701 MHz
  • 2 GB GDDR5

The memory system is actually running faster on the RX 460 than the RX 470, though with half the memory bus width at 128-bits.

AMD obviously voiced its support for DirectX and was happy to say that all Radeon GPUs powered by its latest Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture will support DirectX 12.

AMD Gains Significant Market Share in Q2 2016

by Ryan Shrout |
Over the last couple of quarters we have seen AMD gain in this space, and keeping in mind that Q2 2016 does not include sales of AMD's new Polaris-based graphics cards like the Radeon RX 480, the jump to 29.9% is a big move for the company.
I recently did some benchmarking with triple 4K monitors running a native resolution of 11,520 x 2160, and I didn't expect the results that I did with the new Titan X. The new GDDR5X-based Titan X is around 50% faster than the GTX 1080, and faster again when we look at the last-gen Titan X. AMD's HBM1-powered Fury X is left in the new Titan X's dust, in a big way, mostly because it's limited by its 4GB framebuffer.
There were tactics used that HBM1 and the 4096-bit memory bus (compared to 512-bit on the Radeon R9 390X) were able to fetch what it needed faster and that there was delta color compression, it would beat everything else on the market - at least, that's what the world expected.
Performance (overclocking, power)80%Quality (build, design, cooling)80%General Features (display outputs, etc)80%Bundle, Packaging & Software80%Value for Money90% Overall TweakTown Rating82% The Bottom Line: SAPPHIRE's new Nitro Radeon RX 460 4GB is priced at just $139, nailing the 1080p gaming scene.
From the top of the graphics card, we can see some SAPPHIRE branding and some nice silver and black accents.
The TDP of this card is sub-75 watts and thus we should find cards that don't require any kind of external power.
With that said, we may see custom cooled RX 470 graphics cards because while AMD does technically have a reference design with blower style cooler the company expects most if not all of its partners to go their own direction with this board including their own single and dual fan coolers.
