Pros: - Actually around MSRP.
- Does not require a 6 pin connector.
- Performs better than an R9 270X.
Cons: -,-,-,-,-,-,-,-,-,-,-,-,-,-,-,-, Doesn't work.
Other Thoughts: - If you search online the AMD forums right now you will see several individuals having issues with their games crashing, trouble installing Windows, black screens, etc. The one thing they all have in common... This card.
I personally experienced this. I had built a computer for a client who only plays MOBAs and this card was perfect for that and cheap to boot. When I bread boarded the build everything was fine, hell the card even passed furmark and other gpu benchmarks without issue. Then I had tons of trouble getting windows to install kept getting error 0x000025 or something like that. Once I got Windows to install after hours of work arounds and what not. Everything seemed fine at the time. Windows would boot without issue, could surf the web, etc. Everything was fine, then we installed some games and everything fell apart. At the time I was freaking out, I couldn't figure out what was causing the issue, I ran every test possible, swapped every component possible, used every available driver, until finally I said "let me swap the graphics card"... Bam... Everything works fine. No issues, smoothest computer I've ever made.
Moral of the story, STAY AWAY FROM THIS GRAPHICS CARD UNLESS YOU WANT A HEADACHE! They took shortcuts and it will ultimately leave you $100+ down the hole with nothing to show for it and probably throw you under the bus if you are running a business. Spend a little more and get a better brand and avoid the headaches.
This review is from: TRENDnet TE100-S16D Unmanaged 16-Port Switch
Pros: Works like a charm.
Other Thoughts: In my use case. Even it not having 10/100/1000 is honestly not a big deal to me as the internet speeds where I live haven't even gotten to a point where they can even fully utilize the 100Mbps.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Well built.
- Looks cool.
- Low power draw/ less power than GTX 950
- Low heat emission
- Small and will fit in almost any case out there.
- Crossfire capable
- Smooth consistent frame delivery unlike older AMD GPUs. A marked improvement for AMD.
- H.264 + HEVC encoding on the fly @ 60 for streaming your games online without a loss in performance.
- 14 nm GPU. New tech.
- HDR ready with Display port 1.4
- HDMI 2.0 ( Finally AMD... )
- Vulkan ( If you play Doom 2016 this one makes a huge difference, upwards of 30+% ) + DX 12 support.
Cons: - Based on web reviews, it looks like 2 GB of this card's 4 GB frame buffer aren't really used until you put the card in crossfire with another RX 460 4 GB.
- This card, along with other higher priced premium models of the RX 460, require a 6 pin power connector, as they exceed the TDP of >75W, not by much but it is something to keep in mind.
- Bad pricing since the GTX 950 costs about the same as these 4 GB models but performs much better.
- Bad Pricing since the GTX 1050 has yet to show it's face at the time of this review and will probably land at or $10 more than this and will be significantly better in performance. Only time will tell.
Other Thoughts: The following is for someone living in the U.S of A. Pricing is based on USD.
- If you want an RX 460, buy the PowerColor 2 GB model instead for $30-40 less. The 4 GB on these higher end 4 GB RX 460's are pointless as you can't even fully utilize the 4 GB frame buffer unless you have the cards in crossfire. Just look around the web and you will see people posting performance reviews of RX 460's ( 2 GB and 4 GB ) performing at about the same level on similar settings and setups. This again points to half the VRAM not being utilized simply because the RX 460's 128 memory bit bus width and the amount of GPU horse power it has is no where near enough to tackle down a fully loaded 4 GB frame buffer. Do yourself a favor, buy the cheaper 2 GB model from PowerColor or simply go with Nvidia's similarly priced GTX 950 as it performs much better even with only 2 GB of VRAM even on higher settings. If you choose Nvidia's GTX 950 you get slower memory @ 6.6 Gbps ( although most after market version come @ 7 Gbps ) vs 7 Gbps ( Stock ) on the RX 460, and instead of having access to freesync you have access to the more expensive Gsync adaptive sync technology. I think the biggest change here is the Adaptive sync monitor choice. Nvidia's solution is markedly more expensive than AMD's freesync solution. There are really cheap freesync monitors at around $150 from AOC. You will have to really look on newegg to find them as newegg doesn't have them listed correctly, I am looking at you Newegg... . Anyway, that means for under $300 you would have a 1ms response time, 75hz refresh, freesync, and RX 460 2 GB for that price. Nvidia can't touch that kind of value right now. Let's also be honest you aren't going to be using this card on ultra like so many review sites do when showing people comparisons of the RX 460 vs the GTX 950. You are going to play on Low to get the absolute best performance, for the games this card targets, to have the most competitive chance of winning in those type of games. Games like CS GO, Dota 2, Rocket League, League of Legends, etc. This card will perform well enough to give the Nvidia counter part a run for it's money. Pretty much any F2P game that is competitive ( or not ) you will be set with this card and if you get that 1ms response time monitor combo I mentioned earlier you have a nice and ready for competitive play monitor to go with your new graphics card making for a great value.
Hopefully this review helps some of you.
Again it's a good card, just not priced well at $140.
You could get an GTX 950, R9 380, or an R9 270X, and be around or above what this card is bringing to the table. Just something to consider when making your purchase.
