AMD unveils RX 470 and RX 460 at E3 2016

For 1080p and MOBA gaming

AMD pulled a rabbit out of its hat at the PC Gaming Show hosted with PCGamer at E3 2016 in Los Angeles, unveiling two new Polaris-based Radeon graphics cards, the Radeon RX 470 and the Radeon RX 460.

While the Polaris 10-based RX 480 is meant to bring VR gaming to a completely new price segment, the RX 470 and the RX 460 is aimed to make 1080p and MOBA gamers more happy. Meant to replace the R7 370 and the R7 360, launched at US $149 and US $109, respectively, the RX 470 and RX 460 are still pretty much a mystery, as AMD did not reveal a lot of information.

According to some details, the Radeon RX 470 is most likely based on version of the Polaris 10 GPU with lower Stream Processor count while the RX 460 is based on a smaller Polaris 11 GPU. AMD did not even finalize the cooler design for the RX 470 while the RX 460 will end up with a small fan and we will probably see a passive version as well as a low profile versions.

The pictured RX 470 still comes with a single 6-pin PCIe power connector so the TDP is somewhere between 75W and 150W. The RX 460 on the other hand does not require any addition power so the TDP is below 75W.

Hopefully we will hear more about these two graphics cards and if AMD follows the same aggressive pricing like it did with the RX 480, these will be rather interesting graphics cards for casual and 1080p gamers.
