Something I notice is there is a -massive- dropoff in performance between the RX 470 and RX 460, over 50%, and will be about the power of the R9 370X, while the RX 470 is looking about the power of the R9 390 (non X). AMD said, about the RX 470
If you do your gaming on a 1080p panel, which many of us still do, then the RX 470 is meant for you. AMD said the card can handle demanding AAA games such as Far Cry Primal, The Witcher 3 and Project Cars with high or ultra settings and deliver upwards of 60 fps.
We know from the RX 480 reviews that Project CARS only hits 69FPS, but 60FPS is only about 15% slower.
AMD hasn’t revealed the actual price tags for the RX 460 and RX 470, but it’s clear that they will both be less than $200 and likely not under $100.
And before you say "well it's a low power card with a TDP probably of 60w with a single slot cooler"...
We expected the RX 460 to be a single slot card, but we were mistaken. The RX 460 features a single slot bracket, but the cooler is taller than single slot spacing allows.
So pricing is going to be everything. $175 for the RX 470 sounds about right. The RX 460 though...AMD's going to have to only put two digits in front of the decimal point for it to make any sense.
