While a lot of gamers are excited about Nvidia’s new ‘GTX 10 Series’, let’s not forget that AMD is also bringing out some new cards.
The company has confirmed the prices of its new Radeon RX 460 and 470 models: $99 and $149, respectively. Considering the fact that these are mid-tier cards, these prices are reasonable.
Here are the specifications of the cards:
This card has 2GB of GDDR5 vRAM, with a memory interface of 128 bits, it’s formed of 896 Stream Processors, and also features the R9 Nano cooler. It’s a pretty economic GPU, consuming less than 75W, making it perfect for any eco-conscience gamers (or simply those who are looking to keep their power bills as low as possible).
On the beefier side, the RX 470 is formed of 2048 Stream Processors with 4 or 8GB (custom models only) of GDDR5 vRAM with a memory interface of 256 bits. With this, the resulting bandwidth is 224 GB/s. Naturally, the 470 is a little more power-hungry than the 460, consuming 110W.
