We’ve talked a lot about the RX 460 lately, concentrating on using it as the building block for a surprisingly affordable AAA gaming PC. What’s not to love about a ~$100 graphics card that can handle everything from eSports to AAA shooters? Well, sometimes choice is great. But sometimes it’s paralyzing! So today we wanted to steer you toward an awesome feature at Hexus.net that guides you to the RX 460 variant that’s just right for you.
In their comparison, Hexus takes a deep dive into the following heavy-hitters:
- ASUS RX 460 ROG Strix OC 4GB
- Gigabyte RX 460 WindForce OC
- Sapphire RX 460 Nitro OC 4GB
- XFX RX 460 Core Edition DD 4GB
Hexus does a terrific job rounding up crucial specs for each card — PCB length, build quality, cooling style, power requirements, notable extra features — and then puts each one through a battery of tests measuring gaming performance, temperature, noise, overclocking potential, and power consumption.
I also appreciate that their test bench reflects the kind of system most gamers interested in buying a Radeon RX 460 would own, versus using absurd amounts of RAM and a $1000 CPU.
So if you’re in the market for an affordable 1080p graphics card, check out their feature here, and let us know which one is your favorite!
