Back in May, AMD unveiled its Radeon RX480, which became the cheapest VR-capable graphics card available. The company is continuing to stick with its low-price / solid-performance model today with the announcement of two new GPUs — the RX 460 and RX 470. These aren’t meant for VR, but Radeon is billing them as an affordable way to get into gaming while not compromising quality.
The 470, which is designed for 1080p gaming and video streaming, can reach up to 4.9 teraflops of power, has a memory bandwidth of up to 211 Gbps, and has 4GB of GDDR5 memory. The 460, which is meant for the vaguely defined purpose of "e-sport gaming," reaches up to 2.2 teraflops, has a memory bandwidth of up to 112Gbps, and either two or 4GB of GDDR5 RAM.
We don’t have pricing on either of these new graphics cards, but they should be cheaper than the 480, which starts at $199. The 470 is out on August 4th and the 460 on August 8th.
