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:

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!

  1. Hello,
    I will gladly trdse in all my old AMD cards plus the one I have in my computer now to get a decent AMD card that will let me play my Witcher 3 and really good frames rates. Pleaselet me know if you will take me up on my offer,

    AMD Rocks!!!!!!!!

    Cheers, Robert

    Cards I own, Radeon X 1650Pro, Radeon HD4650, Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition, and the one I am using now Radeon R7 260X I keep entering Giveaways but the AMD Gods haven’t shined on me yet.

  2. im using amd a4-5300 apu with radeon HD graphics 3.4 ghz, 12gb ram 1866mhz, 120gb ssd,500gb hdd planning to buy this GPU is it bottleneck if it is what should i change

    1. Hey Potato! That APU may present a bottleneck with certain titles, but my main concern is the fact that dual-core isn’t supported by a growing number of releases. Rest assured, the RX 460 is still going to give you a MASSIVE visual and performance boost compared to what you have with the integrated HD 7480D graphics. But I’d recommend looking forward to either a lower-end Ryzen, or a quad-core FX CPU.

  3. im using r7 250 from xfx pinegroup cannot play world of tanks the only game i currently play for more than 20minutes without it getting to 65deg celceuis sadly car broke downnow that i am getting my tax check so unlikely to fix for me any suggestions to keep me playing would be greatly appreciated other specs amd fx 4330 processor 1tb samsung harddrive gigabye generic motherboard but i did buy a 4th fan doesn’t seem to be helping

  4. I was considering getting 460 for my budget PC, but luckily I’ve managed to reach out for 470 (xfx 4GB OC) and I couldn’t be happier. Simply incredible performance and no more worries for me.

  5. Had Asus hd 7850 2gb direct cu II in crossfire, upgrading to xfx rx 480 8gb. Sold 2 cards for $75 each…..it took $64 on top of my old cards to get the rx 480! Eyes out for deals everyone, they pop up when u least expect it!

  6. Another thing while I’m at it, I have an fx-6350, 16gb ddr3 1600, h100, and an m5a990fx..would anything bn this xfx rx 480 8gb?
