After the long-awaited Radeon RX 480, AMD partners are preparing for the presentation of the cheaper cards with GPU Polaris, we talk about the Radeon models RX 470 and RX 460. These of course can not miss Sapphire, that after the RX 480 Nitro, reveals (perhaps indirectly) the Radeon RX 470 Platinum.
The Radeon RX 470 will use the GPU Polaris Pro 10, in this case the Sapphire version is very similar to the reference model AMD, although we note a customized cover with so much of the backplate to optimize the cooling of the components.
From the available images you will notice the 4 + 1 phase VRM and the auxiliary power connector PCI-E 6-pin; This makes us understand that the card’s TDP could be close to that of the older sister RX 480, with frequencies probably very close. The price of the card could be about $ 179.
In addition to the RX 470 Platinum, the source also displays a custom RX 460, a model that looks like a product of the Nitro series saw the custom dual fan cooler. The Radeon RX 460 will be even cheaper and will mount the GPU Polaris 11, low-power chip that will not require additional PCI-E connector, using only 75 watts of the PCI-E slot. No details on the price of this version.
