Taking advantage of the PC Gaming Show event at E3 2016, AMD went ahead to announce the remaining two graphic cards of its new Radeon RX series: the RX 460 and RX 470.
The RX 460 is a low-powered GPU that is designed to run eSports titles. Such games seldom require incredible power from a system to dish out maximum performance, and AMD is making sure that competitive players on a budget now have an option when they enter the hardware market in search of an upgrade.
The RX 470 on the other hand is designed to offer smooth 1080p gaming at high frame-rates. AMD claimed that the card has no heating issues and runs quietly on low temperatures.
AMD announced RX 480 last month, a high-end option for power-hungry users. At the incredible price of $199.99 for 4GB VRAM, it is designed by the red team to deliver virtual reality and 1440p gaming. The card is slated for launch on June 29. We’re hoping that the card performs brilliantly in its benchmarks and legitimizes all claims made by AMD so far.
No pricing was announced for the RX 460 and RX 470. It, though, goes without saying that the reference models will definitely be cheaper than the $199.99 price point. Elsewhere in the press release, AMD revealed that the Radeon RX series will support technologies such as HDR gaming, HDMI 2.0b, and DisplayPort 1.3 and 1.4 with future updates.
