GIGABYTE, the worldâ€™s leading gaming hardware brand, today announced Radeonâ„¢ RX 460 WINDFORCE OC edition graphics cards based on the latest Polaris 11 GPU with two memory variants of 4GB and 2GB models. Powered directly from the PCI Express slot, the power-efficient RX 460 graphics cards do not require auxiliary power yet come with a brilliant overclocking performance up to 1212MHz. Thanks to Polaris architecture with Ultra HD HEVC Encode and Decode, gamers could easily stream and record their favorite games with virtually no performance impact, making RX 460 an ideal upgrade solution for eSports gaming.
Featuring two semi-passive 80mm fans and unique blade fan design for enhancing airflow, the WINDFORCE 2X cooling system ensures the RX 460 WINDFORCE OC run cool and virtually inaudible while delivering smooth and low-latency gaming for the most popular eSports games. The fans are regulated as they remain turned off during lighter gaming, offering a completely silent, interruption-free experience to eSports gamers whose focus and concentration are vital to their victory.
The RX 460 WINDFORCE OC edition are built using Ultra Durable chokes and capacitors, making the MOSFET working at a lower temperature for more stable voltage output. Backed by a 4+1 power phase design, the cards ensure stable voltage output at a lower temperature, which translates to a better overclocking capability compared to the reference design. Via the intuitive interface of XTREME Engine utility, gamers can monitor and adjust clock speeds, voltage, and fan performance in real time according to their own preferences.
No pricing at the time of this article, however being RX 460 it should be sub RM 1,000. I’m not expecting the 2GB variant to be much cheaper than the 4GB variant so realistically speaking 4GB variant is the way to go.
