Good news for budget-PC gamers out there, AMD is releasing two new gaming video cards in their RX series graphics cards. The RX 470 and RX 460, due to release this August.
RX 460 is your best pick sports a 128-bit, 2GB GDDR5 RAM. This lower model can give you a peak performance of 2.2 TFLOPs while keeping your computer cool as it draws a meagre 75 watts (or less). This card supports leading graphics driver such as DirectX 12, Vulcan, Virtual Super Resolution, and of course, AMD?s own Freesync Technology. With the price just around the $100 mark, this graphics card is recommended for e-sports gamers.
For those with a bit of cash in their hands, the RX 470 is the best ?compromise? between performance and value. Peaking at 4.9 TFLOPs this mean gaming card is matched with a 256-bit, 4GB GDDR5 onboard RAM. Playing at 60 fps on 1080p is not a problem for the RX 470 although VR is out of the question at the moment. Like the RX 460, the RX 470 also supports AMD?s Freesync Technology, DirectX 12, Vulcan, and Virtual Super Resolution. This mid-range graphics card with a price tag below the $200 mark is highly recommended for semi-serious gamers.
Gamers would only need to wait until August 4th before the RX 470 hits the shelves while AMD is set to release the RX 460 on Aug. 8.
