The new GTX 960 is the third graphics card to feature Nvidia's Maxwell architecture. When the first two Maxwell cards were released back in September 2014 they completely re-shaped the GPU price/performance spectrum not only from Nvidia, but also AMD who were forced to slash prices by around 30%. Unfortunately the new GTX 960 isn't the game changer its predecessors were, and it's actually the weakest of the three Maxwell cards. Comparing the GTX 960 and 970 shows that the 970 is around 70% faster and a comparison of the GTX 960 and 980 shows that GTX 980 is almost exactly twice as fast as the 960. Of the three cards the GTX 970 offers the best bang for your buck, in-fact the GTX 970 is still one of best value cards available. That said, for gaming at 1080p or lower, the GTX 960 will allow decent frame rates at maximum settings for most games. [Jan '15 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]
