AMD release performance details for their RX 470 and RX 460 GPUs, revealing the RX 470 to be a 1080p budget-performance GPU and the RX 460 to be a great performer for MOBAs and HD gaming. 

In the below slides AMD's RX 470 is said to operate at 70+ FPS in most modern AAA games at 1080P high settings, giving this GPU some great performance for budget PC gamers which will exceed that of current generation consoles. 

The RX 460 is shown to have performance which is up to 2x that of the R9 260X that it replaces, offering a much better player experience for modern games.

AMD has already announced the specifications of their RX 470 and RX 460 GPUs, confirming that the RX 470 will feature a Polaris 10 GPU core that only has 4 less CUs than that RX 480, making this GPU looks like a great budget performer for AMD's new GPU product stack.

Below is a table that compares the known specifications of the RX 460 and RX 470 compared to AMD's recently released RX 480 GPU. Hopefully, we will learn more specifications soon, including core clock speeds.

Right now it looks like AMD's RX 460 will come at the price point that is under $100 and will offer performance that is similar to the GPUs used in current generation consoles and the RX 470 GPU will offer performance that is not VR ready, but perfect for low-cost 1080p gamers.

I don't see the need for a 2gb 460 tbh, the 470 4gb around the £100 mark would seem the sweet spot if it goes to £150 then the 480 4gb would be worth the extra money imo.
2gb I think is too little ram for games these days and more of an issue in the not to distant futureQuote

RRP is $99 and $149. They should be around £130, so a good £50 less than the 480.

The need for a 460 2gb is probably because it will cost around £70 and be able to run 1080p very well or resolutions less than. Remember, lots of people on a budget are still rocking very old monitors or TVs that are native 720p. 2gn would be enough for medium settings with a decent clip of FPS. In fact, the 460 has got me pretty pumped because it's probably the first decent and capable 1080p card for less than £100 ever.Quote

I would still say the 470 would be a better buy than the 460, to my way of thinking the 470 will last longer so the extra expense would be worth the extra 2 years or so it would be able to run games at high settings and then into medium, I'd see the 460 as a false economy buy and need replacing soonerQuote

470 seems like it might be very close to 480. I wonder how close it will get when it is overclocked.Quote

It should overclock decently. It won't be right at it's power limit from the get go, so it should get to 1300mhz on the core and still have some power wiggle room. Although I expect vendors may still throw on an 8 pin anyway, for even more headroom.Quote
