AMD and NVIDIA have been launching graphics cards at a rapid clip this summer. In the last three months or so, about ten new desktop GPUs have been launched or announced, targeting virtually all market segments. Thanks to new architectures and more advanced manufacturing processes, this latest generation of GPUs offer far better performance and efficiency than the previous-gen, with much smaller die sizes too. So it makes sense that the big two discrete GPU makers wanted their latest wares on store shelves ASAP. Today, AMD is ready with an entry-level graphics card featuring its Polaris architecture, the Radeon RX 460. Unlike the Radeon RX 480 and RX 470, the RX 460 is built around a new piece...

Although we were made privy to some details on AMD’s upcoming Radeon RX 470 and Radeon RX 460 graphics cards earlier this month, the company today is officially announcing its newest, mainstream members of the Polaris family. Of the two new cards introduced, the RX 470 is the most closely aligned with the midrange Radeon RX 480 (read the HotHardware review here), with its 2048 stream processors (compared to 2304) and 32 compute units (compared to 36). The RX 470 also takes a hit on clock speeds, with base and boost clocks of 926 MHz and 1206 MHz respectively. With these cut down specs, peak compute performance for the RX 470 drops in at 4.9 TFLOPs (compared to 5.8 TFLOPs for the RX... Read more...
AMD is circling the mainstream GPU market with the Radeon RX 480, which is available in both 4GB and 8GB variants. The graphics cards offer a ton of performance starting from just $200 (4GB) version, as you can see from Marco’s recent review of the cards. However, AMD just recently took the wraps off two Polaris-based graphics cards that will slot in below the RX 480 in performance. Predictably, they are called the Radeon RX 470 and RX 460 and will be priced from $149 and $99 respectively. According to AMD, 84 percent of add-in graphics cards purchased by gamers are in the $100 to $300 price range. So the company is definitely playing to its base with the RX 480, 470 and 460.
