Gigabyte announced Radeon RX 460 WINDFORCE OC edition graphics cards based on the latest Polaris 11 GPU with two memory variants of 4GB and 2GB models. Powered directly from the PCI Express slot, the RX 460 graphics cards do not require auxiliary power. They boast of overclocking performance up to 1212MHz.
“Thanks to Polaris architecture with Ultra HD HEVC Encode and Decode, gamers could easily stream and record their favorite games with virtually no performance impact,” said the company.
It features two semi-passive 80mm fans and blade fan design for enhancing airflow. The WINDFORCE 2X cooling system ensures the RX 460 WINDFORCE OC run cool and virtually inaudible while low-latency gaming for the most popular eSports games, according to the company.
The fans are regulated as they remain turned off during lighter gaming, offering a completely silent, interruption-free experience to eSports gamers whose focus and concentration is vital to their victory.
The RX 460 WINDFORCE OC edition are built using ultra-durable chokes and capacitors, making the MOSFET working at a lower temperature for more stable voltage output. Backed by a 4+1 power phase design, the cards ensure stable voltage output at a lower temperature, which translates to a better overclocking capability compared to the reference design.
With XTREME Engine utility, gamers can monitor and adjust clock speeds, voltage, and fan performance in real time according to their own preferences.
