Confirming rumors of last week, Sapphire unveils a new image of the upcoming Radeon RX 460 Nitro, “cheap video card” which will be equipped with a 14nm GPU Polaris. Unlike the older sisters, Radeon RX 480 and RX 470, the RX 460 will use the chip Radeon Polaris 11, GPU designed for those who have big claims in the gaming and looks very consumption (TDP under 75W).
We are faced with the first RX 460 custom, a version that uses PCB and heatsink owners, providing among other things a factory overclock. The box of the card clearly says “OC” and Sapphire will push the frequency card, probably only on the GPU (896 stream processors); on the slope memories we find 4GB GDDR5 (the reference version has 2GB), always with a 128 bit bus.
At the moment we have no details on pricing, we know that Radeon RX 470 will cost around $ 150 (or less), so this video card should be placed on the band of $ 100, a little more for this custom version of Sapphire. The source reports as the release date on August 8.
