How well can the Radeon RX 460 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 4GB run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this Radeon RX 460 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 4GB graphics card can still meet and run indie system requirements and some of the less demanding AAA games. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Lets look at the Radeon RX 460 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 4GB game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2019. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. 159 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the Radeon RX 460 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 4GB performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Need For Speed Heat and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 38 FPS, Medium: 30 FPS, High: 20 FPS and Ultra: 15 FPS. We proceeded to look at Red Dead Redemption 2 to see how that compared and saw that it returned a weak 15 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the Radeon RX 460 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 4GB performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Need For Speed Heat and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 29 FPS, Medium: 23 FPS, High: 15 FPS and Ultra: 11 FPS. We then checked the performance on Red Dead Redemption 2 to see if that runs well. It was weak with a 11 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the Radeon RX 460 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 4GB is unable to perform adequately across modern games at this increased resolution.

How many years will the Radeon RX 460 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 460 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 4GB in your PC? There is around 6-12 months of top end gaming left in this card, at which point its graphics card replacement time, assuming the Radeon RX 460 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 4GB is part of your PC gaming machine.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 460 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 4GB? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB which is 129% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 901 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively a good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 68% better and can meet 685 of their recommended requirements.

Radeon RX 460 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon RX 460 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 2GB is a middle-class graphics card based on the third revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture. Note that there is a 4GB version of the RX 460, which should be considered for future proofing.


Architecture
It equips a GPU codenamed Baffin PRO which is a 3rd gen Pascal GPU, offering 896 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 16 ROPs.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB 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 2GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 1600p screen res and expect around 45+FPS


System Suggestions
Radeon RX 460 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a mid range CPU and 8GB of system memory for optimal performance.

Just so everyone knows just to clear that up its the wrong picture for the card here. The actual ASUS ROG Strix Gaming 4GB Card is 4GB and performs great for its price however I prefer the sapphire nitro card varient as its cheaper and actually performs a tiny bit better at 5% even if you can't tell :)
