In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX 460 4GB.

The RX 580 has a 167 MHz higher core clock speed and 88 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 460. This results in the RX 580 providing 120 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RX 580 has a 167 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the RX 460. This results in the RX 580 providing 22.8 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX 580 was released less than a year after the RX 460, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB and the Radeon RX 460 4GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The RX 580 has 224 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 460, which means that the memory performance of the RX 580 is massively better than the RX 460.

The Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB has 2304 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 460 4GB has 896. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 580 is 3122 and the actual shader performance of the RX 460 is 1075. The RX 580 having 2047 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 580 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 460.

The Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB requires 150 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 460 4GB requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 580 and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the RX 460. The RX 580 requires 75 Watts more than the RX 460 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX 580 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 460.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
First off we should point out that this is not the new AMD Vega graphics card line. The new AMD Radeon RX 500 series are an uprated version of the RX 400 series that they are replacing. This Gigabyte RX 580 Gaming graphics card is one of the two more powerful models from the new AMD Radeon RX 500 Series.

This RX 580 is the 4GB version and there is also the higher VRAM version, RX580 8GB available.

Architecture
It equips a GPU codenamed Polaris 20 XTX, which has 2304 shader processing units, 144 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB central processing unit runs at 1257MHz and goes up to a top 1355MHz when in boost and turbo mode. This makes it one of the fastest recorded RX 580s so far

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
The RX 580 4GB has a power TDP requirement of 150W. This means it will require at least a 500W PSU with one dedicated 8-pin connector.

Performance
Early benchmarks indicate that the AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB will be similar in performance to the Nvidia GTX 1060 in terms of gaming performance. This puts the RX 580 4GB about 8% faster than the model it replaced, the AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB. Comparing the RX 580 to RX 570 we see 1440p frame rates around 8-15% better with the RX580 version

System Suggestions
The new Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB released on the 18th April 2017 and is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a high-end processor, like the new Ryzen R5 and at least 8GB of RAM for optimal gaming performance.
Overview
Radeon RX 460 4GB is an Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the 4th Generation of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Baffin XT which has 14 Compute Units activated and thus 896 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 16 ROPs.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it requires at least a 350W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power, meaning no Extra Connectors are required.

Performance
This graphics card was designed and marketed towards the competitive MOBO gamers. A light weight, small form factor GPU solution that offers mobility, so that gamers travelling to events can bring a smaller cheaper gaming rig. The Radeon RX 460 4GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 1600p screen res and expect around 45+FPS

System Suggestions
Radeon RX 460 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
