Sapphire’s RX 460 Sports the New Dual-X Cooler

Posted by at 9:10 am on August 8, 2016

The Radeon RX 470 only just landed, and AMD already unleashed the RX 460. Naturally, it’s no surprise that Sapphire is right on time for the party with its Nitro Radeon RX 460 4G and the Radeon RX 460 2G – one luxurious approach to an RX 460 and one a budget approach.

The Nitro RX 460 4G carries the new Dual-X cooler, which gives the card a neat appearance and “Quick Connect” fans. These fans can be easily removed for cleaning, or replaced entirely in caseone of them breaks, preventing you from needing to send in your entire graphics card for repair. The RX 470 and RX 480 variants with this cooler come with RGB lighting and fans that spin down below certain temperatures, although we’re not sure if this RX 460 model has these features, so we’ve asked Sapphire to find out. The GPU is clocked at 1,250 MHz (50 MHz faster than the reference specification), whereas the memory remains at a standard 7.0 Gbps.

As a more affordable offering, the Sapphire Radeon RX 460 2G with its 2 GB of GDDR5 memory doesn’t offer the high-end Dual-X cooler, but rather a more generic dual-fan cooler. Its GPU comes clocked at 1,210 MHz (just 10 MHz over the standard clocks), and memory also remains clocked at 7.0 Gbps.

There’s no word on pricing or availability yet.
