I don’t know how many times has this been announced but I just received an E-mail saying it was announced so here it is – the RX 470 and RX 480, it’s not like you guys haven’t heard about it – right? 😀
Let’s cut to the chose and talk about these cards. If you need to kill time and bandwidth, you may download the Complete Press Deck from here. (My Dropbox account, no virus!)
AMD Radeon RX 470
There’s no price for the reference model at this point of time but I have seen pre-order for SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeonâ„¢ RX 470 8G GDDR5 OC going at RM 1139.
AMD Radeon RX 460
Just like the RX 470, I’ve seen the SAPPHIRE NITRO Radeonâ„¢ RX 460 4G GDDR5 OC going at RM 689 on Pre-Order.
It’s interesting to note that AMD doesn’t compare these cards to the R9 300 series, perhaps the gap would be too close to make it look impressive.
I’ve not savored the cards myself but my guess would be that the RX 470 will perform like the R9 380X while the RX 460 performs like the R9 380. No fancy calculation to derive the numbers, I’m just going based on the RX 480 of which the performance is around the R9 390.
It’s quite a no-brainer, the performance gap would be kept at a minimal. So, are you buying one?
