SAPPHIRE Radeon™ RX 460 2G DDR5 PCI-E
The AMD Radeon RX 460 is a mainstream graphics card designed for smooth performance in the hottest online games at HD resolution and beyond. Built on the Polaris architecture and fabricated with FinFET 14nm process, this card comes equipped with 896 Stream Processors and 2GB 128-bit GDDR5 memory, delivering more than enough performance for smooth, crisp gameplay in the popular MOBA games like LOL, Overwatch and DOTA 2. Async shaders and new geometry capabilities of the latest version of Graphics Core Next enable unprecedented DirectX 12 performance. You can also experience a new level of immersion with the mind-blowing VR, powered by revolutionary LiquidVR technology. One Display Port 1.4 (DisplayPort 1.2 Certified, DisplayPort 1.3/1.4 Ready) and one HDMI 2.0 outputs let you take full advantage of the latest 2K/4K high refresh-rate monitor. A host of advanced technologies offers you more ways to elevate your gaming experience, like HDR, AMD FreeSync, Eyefinity, and etc.
This Sapphire card is slightly overclocked to 1210MHz (1200MHz for reference card) Core clock, and comes with features Dual-X Cooling for efficient and quiet cooling even when you're pushing your graphics card hard.
SAPPHIRE's acclaimed Dual-X Cooling is powered by two massive yet silent fans and state-of-the-art radiator design. The new form of 95mm blades mean greater airflow and superior heatsink coverage at lower noise compared to standard cooling designs.
DirectX 12 is a new, “console-like” graphics API from Microsoft that empowers game developers with more direct and obvious control of PC hardware. This direct or “explicit” control better exposes the hardware resources of AMD Radeon GPUs to yield higher hardware throughput and, ultimately, more performance for users. To put it simply: much more efficient hardware through smarter software! At the discretion of a game developer, this superior efficiency can be spent on higher framerates, lower latency (VR), lower power consumption, better image quality, or some calculated balance of all four. In any scenario, gamers stand to benefit greatly from choosing AMD hardware to run their favorite DirectX 12 game.
High Dynamic Range (HDR) is a state-of-the-art technology for gamers and cinephiles that care deeply about the display quality of their TV or monitor. Modeled after the acuity of human vision, HDR vastly expands the range of colors and contrast ratios that can be shown by compatible displays. HDR-ready games and movies played on an HDR display appear strikingly sharp, colorful, and vivid, with enhanced contrast and sophisticated nuance compared to even the most stunning SDR content.
Virtual Super Resolution
Virtual Super Resolution (VSR) is an AMD feature that is game and engine agnostic to simulate Super-Sampling Anti-Aliasing (SSAA) in games that do not have native SSAA support. VSR can also be used in conjunction with other native in-game anti-aliasing for even more game graphics-setting control. VSR allows games to render at higher resolutions (up to 4K, depending on the game support) and then rescales them down to a lower native display resolution. Using this, you can get quality that rivals up to 4K, even on a 1080p display while playing your favorite games.
AMD FreeSync technology
- No stuttering. No tearing. Just gaming.
- AMD FreeSync technology allows a compatible graphics card and monitor to dynamically change frame rates for the optimum display quality without tearing or stutter.
- Freesync uses industry-standard DisplayPort Adaptive-Sync Eliminates screen tearing without all the usual lag and latency
- Synchronizes the refresh rate of a compatible monitor to the frame rate of your content, however much it varies
- Monitor partners are validating with drivers from AMD now
AMD Eyefinity Technology
Multidisplay technology for gaming, productivity and entertainment.
Go beyond the boundaries of traditional PC displays. AMD Eyefinity technology expands the traditional limits of desktop computing by multiplying your screen area. With multiple monitors, games become more immersive, workstations become more useful and you become more productive (an average of 42% more productive according to one study).
Take your PC games to the next level of reality and immersion. Most modern games look great on three screens, and only AMD Radeon graphics offer you the ability to play across five screens for an eye-popping gaming experience. Other combinations and configurations with up to six screens work too. Create your dream display.AMD Eyefinity Technology
Harness the power of multiple GPUs.
AMD CrossFire technology is the ultimate multi-GPU performance gaming platform. Unlocking game-dominating power, AMD CrossFire harnesses the power of two or more discrete graphics cards working in parallel to dramatically improve gaming performance. AMD CrossFire technology ready graphics cards fit practically every budget. With the flexibility to combine two, three or four GPUs, AMD CrossFire technology is the perfect solution for those who demand extreme performance.
AMD XConnect Technology
Plug in and game on with AMD XConnect technology.
Now it’s easier than ever to connect and use an external Radeon graphics card. With AMD XConnect technology, external GPU enclosures configured with Radeon Graphics can easily connect and disconnect to a compatible ultrathin notebook or 2-in 1 over Thunderbolt 3 at any time, just like a USB flash drive—a first for external GPUs!
