How well can the Radeon RX 460 Sapphire Nitro 4G D5 run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this Radeon RX 460 Sapphire Nitro 4G D5 graphics card can still meet and run indie system requirements and some of the less demanding AAA games. Radeon RX 460 Sapphire Nitro 4G D5 is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2019. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon RX 460 Sapphire Nitro 4G D5 runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 210.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Borderlands 3 getting 7 FPS with the Radeon RX 460 Sapphire Nitro 4G D5, Need For Speed Heat getting 19 FPS and Death Stranding predicted to get 0 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Borderlands 3 to see how the Radeon RX 460 Sapphire Nitro 4G D5 dealt with it. It scored up a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 14 FPS, Medium: 11 FPS, High: 7 FPS and Ultra: 5 FPS. Next we looked at Need For Speed Heat which was weak with a 14 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Death Stranding that we predict will get an Ultra 1440p FPS of 0. 1440p Radeon RX 460 Sapphire Nitro 4G D5 PC gaming is going to underperform if you try and run modern games.

How many years will the Radeon RX 460 Sapphire Nitro 4G D5 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 460 Sapphire Nitro 4G D5 in your PC? This Radeon RX 460 Sapphire Nitro 4G D5 card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 460 Sapphire Nitro 4G D5? A good choice when looking to upgrade the Radeon RX 460 Sapphire Nitro 4G D5 would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB which meets 895 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 114% better performance. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the Radeon RX 460 Sapphire Nitro 4G D5 would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which meets 684 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 60% better performance.
