The RX 470 might be the mid-range flagship of the latest GCN 4.0 set of graphics cards, but their prices keep them out of the reach of most entry-level PC gamers. On the other hand, the RX 460 is closer to being reasonably affordable at a price tag of $ 140. AMD ’s xx60 cards have always been defined by entry-level prices with performance that knocks on the door of mid-range graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the GCN 4.0 graphics card inside the RX 460, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend.

The RX 460 is much more expensive than the R7 360 as it costs a whopping $ 140. Compare this to the R7 360, which came originally at a price of $ 109. Meanwhile, the NVIDIA closest equivalent card is the GTX 950 which costs $ 159.
