RX 460 and RX 470 definitely both are cheaper and a lower power option as compared with RX 480 due to its Polaris architecture it was also announced also officially in E3 gaming show that was held in 2016.Now we will have a look on the specifications of each card and we will see the difference between its prices. Anyhow AMD Radeon graphic card are all good no doubt in it but the specifications do matters because of memory speed and its bandwidth and TDP. There is not even much gap in their launch. You will see below AMD RX 460,470,480 Price, Specs, Release Date.
As mentioned earlier this is the card with lowest power among its family of the Radeon 400.Its is usually advertised as a low-power desktop star.It only ships 14 CUs that are enabled as it has smaller of the two Polaris its base clock is a bit higher than its next model that 470. With the power of 896 stream processor it is enable to market itself rapidly as its base clock is 1090MHz and base clock for 470 is only 925Mhz with the same amount of boost clock.It has another feature of memory because you can choose between two options 4Gb and 2 Gb while GDDR is clocked at higher than both of these versions that is 7Gbs.
As iGPUs are getting older with the passage of time and the AMD Company now wants their customer to upgrade to new cards as it is thought as the low power segment would go for buying RX 460 as it best suits to them although it is really not aggressive in performance as compared with other Polaris cards but it is still much strong in the low power market where needed. They have just launched it to cover their one target market segment only. Their prices are according to their memory like 2gb is £30-35 cheaper I am quoting these prices according to UK 2GB VRAM price is only £99 and 4GB VRAM price is only £129.Its launch will be in the current week so be ready to grab it now
This card is specially designed to provide lower consumption that’s why it clocks lower as compared with other cards it is based 10 GPU a sort of salvaged version of Polaris. AMD must be targeting RX 470 to same 1080p general market as it has some of the added benefits as follow:
- Twice the number of stream processors
- Architectural enhancements
- Higher clock speed
- Extra features that goes into Polaris
Amazingly Rx 470 is better than RX 480 in term of its look but not much better in performance as compared with RX 480 even if it has higher compute performance and better texture & shadder but still its level of performance is only equivalent to 85% with respect to RX 480. AMD RX 470 is only with 4GB memory and it is available now in the price of £170. It was launched after RX 480 and its launch date is 4th of august 2016
AMD RX 480
their prices are according to their memory like 4gb is with the difference of $40 almost cheaper I am quoting these prices accordin to UK 4GB VRAM price is only $199 as we can see a direct difference of $100 compared with RX460 and 8GB VRAM price is only $239. It was launched before RX 470 and its launch date is 29th june 2016.
