AMD Radeon RX 460
The Radeon RX 460 is a GPU from AMD released in 2016. This chip has a bad gaming score at 8% in our GPU benchmark.
The Radeon RX 460 has 4 GiB of GDDR5 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 109 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 128 bits. If you plan on gaming at higher resolutions with higher quality textures, more memory is important. Without enough memory, performance will be degraded.
In terms of clock speed, the Radeon RX 460 GPU core runs at a frequency of 1090 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1200 MHz. The clock runs at a speed called the clock speed. It dictates the number of updates per second that the GPU can process. Overclocking a chip, which means increasing the clock speed will improve the performance. However, thermals and power efficiency may be diminished.
As for rendering API support, the Radeon RX 460 supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.5 features are supported. Higher level APIs such as DirectX 12 give more control to the game developer and can allow them to improve the graphics and performance.
Power and thermals for the AMD Radeon RX 460 are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 75 watts. This measures the amount of heat the GPU produces when running at 100%. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's a good estimate.
