The AMD Radeon RX 460 is a mainstream graphics card designed for smooth performance in most hot online games at HD resolution. 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) output and one HDMI 2.0 output let you take full advantage of the latest 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 MSI card is slightly overclocked to 1212MHz (1200MHz for reference card) Core clock, and is built with Ultra Durable components to guarantee durability and stability during extended, demanding gaming sessions. The innovative WINDFORCE 2X cooling system remains off when your PC is idle or at low load level, and delivers powerful yet quiet cooling when pushing your card hard.
WINDFORCE 2X Cooling System
The WINDFORCE 2X cooling system features two unique blade fans, 3D active fan functionality, delivering an effective heat dissipation capacity for higher performance at lower temperatures.
Unique Blade Fan Design
The airflow is spilt by the triangle fan edge, and guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface, effectively enhancing the air flow by 23% over traditional fans.
3D Active Fan
The semi-passive fans will remain off when the GPU is under a set loading or temperature for low power gaming. It allows gamers to enjoy gameplay in complete silence when the system is running light or idle.
Ultra Durable Graphics Components
Engineered with the highest-grade chokes and capacitors, the graphic card delivers outstanding performance and durable system lifespan.
Built for OverClocking with 4+1 power phases
Compared to reference design, the 4+1 power phases on the card (reference design 3+1) make the MOSFET working at a lower temperature and provide more stable voltage output.
Adjust clock speeds, voltage, fan performance, power target can be monitored and tuned in real-time according to your own preference through this intuitive interface.

Cool and Efficient Performance
Polaris architecture precisely combines the latest FinFET 14 process technology and AMD’s advanced power, gating and clocking technologies for a whisper-quiet gaming experience. Enjoy gaming features that dynamically optimize sound volumes based on actual temperature and workloads.
DirectX 12, Vulkan & OpenGL 4.5 APIs
Battle-ready with optimized performance for next-gen APIs (DirectX 12, Vulkan, OpenGL 4.5, Mantle) and is designed from the ground up to give you everything you need to enjoy the latest games today and tomorrow.
VR Ready for the Masses
Polaris-powered Radeon GPUs are engineered to provide top-rate VR experiences to a wide range of users. The Polaris architecture provides the perfect combination of low latency, smart software and powerful compute that enables a silky smooth virtual reality experience.
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 (VSR)
Get quality that rivals 4K, even on a 1080p display while playing your favorite AAA or online games thanks to AMD’s VSR.
AMD FreeSync Technology
AMD FreeSync technology puts an end to choppy gameplay and broken frames with fluid, artifact-free performance at virtually any framerate.
AMD Eyefinity Technology
Expand your territory and customize your field of vision. Connect up to six displays on a single GPU for dynamic, panoramic multi-screen gaming. You’ll get an expansive experience that’s truly out of sight.
Next-Gen Display Engine
Radeon GPUs with the Polaris architecture support HDMI 2.0b and DisplayPort 1.3 for compatibility with a new generation of monitors that would make any gamer excited: 1080p 240Hz, 1440p 240Hz, 4K 120Hzâ€”even 1440p ultrawide at 190Hz.
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.
Radeon Software drivers enable the ultimate in performance, features and stability and are designed to continuously improve your experience with up-to-the-minute enhancements, updates and optimizations. Push your hardware to the limits or underclock to near silent gaming with Radeon WattMan (formerly AMD Overdrive) for a whole new level of customization and per state control over clocks, voltages, and temperature.
* AMD’s product warranty does not cover damages caused by overclocking, even when overclocking is enabled via AMD hardware.
HD Game Streaming
Stream and record your favorite games with virtually no performance impact - thanks to Polaris architecture with Ultra HD HEVC Encode and Decode. With a dedicated multimedia block 4K, H.265, 60 FPS encode and decode is now possible.
The Radeon RX 460 delivers up to 1 .3x, 1.2x, 1.2x, 1.2x, and 1.1x more performance in Rocket League, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, Overwatch, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, and DOTA2 respectively compared to the NVidia GTX 750Ti.
Testing by AMD Performance Labs July 8, 2016 using an Intel Core i7 6700K (3.0GHz) CPU, 8 GB (DDR4-2667 MHz) memory, AMD driver 16.30 RC’20 and Windows 10. PC manufacturers may vary configurations yielding different results. The following games were tested at 1080p on the following settings: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (Ultra presets), DOTA 2 Reborn (Ultra Presets), Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege (Very High presets), Overwatch (High Presets), and Rocket League (High Presets). The Radeon RX 460 scored: 141.187, 83.183, 67.16925, 96.173, 69.729 respectively. The Nvidia GTX 750 ti scored: 118.601, 75.767, 55.78513, 79.9, 55.86 respectively. All scores are FPS.
