The Nvidia GTX 970 is a game changer in terms of performance per watt and value for money. The GTX 970 is based on Nvidia's ground-breaking Maxwell architecture which delivers considerable clock for clock performance gains over Kepler, its predecessor. Comparing the GTX 970 and 780 Ti shows that the two cards offer comparable performance yet the new GTX 970 costs nearly half as much! Unsurprisingly Nvidia are discontinuing the 780 Ti as it's now largely redundant. These price to performance gains typically occur once or twice a decade and although the new Maxwell architecture will improve down the line with the release of the Ti/Titan versions, at the moment the 970 offers the best value for money on the market by miles. Since this summary was originally written AMD have slashed prices and older Nvidia models (780/780 Ti/770) have also been hugely discounted.

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.
