Product on Review: RX 460 Double Dissipation
Manufacturer & Sponsor: XFX
Street Price: £125.99 GBP / $134 USD
It’s fair to say that AMD has occupied the low to mid-range of the graphics card market since the new RX series hit the scene in June 2016. The RX 480 has been a particular success story for the brand as they managed to squeeze in a head start over NVIDIA for the next-gen.
In August, AMD unveiled their GCN 1.3 based Baffin GPU by way of the RX 460. This graphics card is touted for 1080p gamers who need an affordable route to DirectX 12 and many weeks on there are a number of custom designs available which offer up their own coolers, factory overclocks and warranties.
Today, we turn to XFX to take a detailed look at their RX 460 Double Dissipation. As its name suggests, this graphics card features a dual-cooling fan design with the added benefit of being able to detach these fans for easy maintenance. XFX has applied a small overclock to the GPU, taking the clock speed from 1200MHz to 1220MHz. Will this help to take on NVIDIA’s GTX 1050?
