The RX 480 is the first graphics card to feature AMD’s new 14nm Polaris architecture. The card is due for release on June 29 (in four days time). We don’t have all the details yet but the RX 480 is rumoured to have an MSRP of $199 and it will likely perform on a par with the Nvidia GTX 970. At present we only have one benchmark so although the performance figures are provisional the RX 480 and GTX 970 do appear to be closely matched. If further tests validate these results and the cards retail at the MSRP of $199, then the new RX 480 will effectively improve graphics card price/performance ratios by a whopping 23%, something that has not happened since the release of the Maxwell based Nvidia GTX 970 nearly two years ago. In addition better price/performance for the current generation of games, the RX 480 also offers relatively strong DX12 support which provides better future proofing than Nvida’s Maxwell (970/980/980 Ti) cards. [Jun '16 GPUPro]

The RX 460 is the third Polaris based 14 nm graphics card released by AMD this year, it follows the 470 and 480). The Polaris 11 GPU which drives the RX 460 is around 50% less powerful than the Polaris 10 GPU used by both the RX 480 and RX 470. Looking at the provisional average benchmarks (we only four samples of the RX 460 at this time) of the RX 460 and RX 480 shows that the performance gap of 50% percent is in line with the specs. The RX 460 is available with custom coolers from launch and it comes in both 2GB and 4GB varieties. With list prices starting from $120 for the 2GB variant the RX 460 offers decent value for money at the lower end of the graphics card spectrum. The 4GB version is somewhat poor value for money at the $150 price point since an RX 480 is only an additional $50 for double the performance. See the current value for money leaders here.  [Aug '16 GPUPro]
