ASUS provide us with a couple of different pieces of software for the RX 460. The first is the Aura lighting configurator. Then there is GPU Tweak 2 with full overclocking and monitoring functionality.

AMD Radeon RX 460 Review – Performance

Testing was performed on the Intel Core i7-6950X running on an X99 board with 16GB of DDR4 and a Samsung 850 Pro SSD. Windows 10 was the OS and all games along with the OS were patched. (The GTX 950 is an overclocked, 4GB model.)

AMD Radeon RX 460 Review – Conclusion

Starting with the Sapphire card, we have a version of the Rx 460 which feels well rounded overall. It is built to a high standard, has a good cooler for this price range and offers framerate performance which sits towards the high end of the market. The thermals are decent and can, of course, be configured to our needs with the noise level being whisper quiet at load and silent at desktop/idle as the fans turn off.

The ASUS version of the RX 460 offers, we feel, a slightly cooler looking card. All personal taste of course but what can’t be debated is the high build quality of the card thanks to the enhanced manufacturing process used throughout their range. ASUS too offer silent operation at low loads/idle and the temperatures offered at load were a small amount better than Sapphire. As far as the framerate performance goes, ASUS were a fraction ahead of the NITRO due to that 6MHz clock difference and temperature.

When we compare the RX 460 to the GTX 950 OC, the direct competition from NVIDIA at the time of writing we see a somewhat surprising set of results. Generally the RX cards have been better than the last generation of NVIDIA cards at launch however the RX 460 tends to fall behind the GTX 950. There is the odd exception to the rule but more often than not the NVIDIA card offers better framerates. That said, the RX 460, from either brand, offers completely playable framerates in the latest games at 1920×1080.
