Sapphire RX 460 Nitro OC review - 1080p all the way

AMD revealed its Polaris members one at a time, and today it’s time for RX 460, their solution for E-sports gaming. AMD claims the new GPU can render that kind of games at 1080p with High Settings at 90+ FPS.

The important point here is the energy efficiency and the reference card has no power connectors, taking its juice only from the PCI-E slot, having an intake of less than 75W.

The first RX 460 graphics card on my desk is Sapphire RX 460 Nitro OC edition, so you’re going to read its review.

Sapphire chose to add a 6-pin power connector, so I assume higher clocks are possible.
