AMD has announced that the mobile variant of their RX 460 will provide the same performance as their desktop counterpart, allowing console level GPU performance to be readily available on slim/sleek laptop designs. 

One thing worth noting about the RX 460 is that is a stronger GPU than what is used in the Xbox One and PS4, making it a very capable gaming GPU, especially in the context of mobile/notebook gaming. 

Below you can see some comparison between the desktop and mobile RX 460 GPUs, though the mobile RX 460 is used in a system with a weaker CPU than the desktop version (i5-6300HQ vs i7 6700K @4.5GHz). This difference in CPU should explain the minor decreases in performance of the mobile RX 460 system.

The portable RX 460 will first be seen in HP's new 15.6 inch OMEN Limited Edition notebook, offering gaming-console levels of performance in a sleek/slim laptop. 

 

The 15.6 OMEN Limited Edition features the Radeon RX 460 card, delivering on the promise of the revolutionary Polaris architecture to enable a game console-level performance experience in a laptop. Delivering fantastic desktop-level gaming performance in a sleek laptop, users no longer must sacrifice portability to get a full desktop class GPU in this form factor.

While AMD does not offer the same levels of efficiency as Nvidia's new Pascal architecture the AMD RX 460 has got a huge advantage when it comes to pricing, making the RX 460 a very attractive option for lower end gaming devices.

If this is cheap I may finally buy a new laptop. Currently running an ROG monster with a Sandy I7 and a desktop GTX 460 in it. Nothing like this 460, obs.Quote

I guess virtually the same performance is the better choice for words here. Since looking at the graph it's slightly slower. Unless the CPU makes that big of a difference along with HT

Still impressive though. Especially compared to previous gen chips. That's before power consumption tooQuote

Probably down to the differences in CPU effecting it more than anything.Quote
