Leak describes the RX 470 and RX 460 video cards in detail

An AMD slide has leaked all the tech specs of the upcoming Radeon RX 470 and RX 460 video cards ahead of their launch in early August. Given the origin of the information we can say that the tech specs are official now.

The Radeon RX 470 will come with an Ellesmere Polaris 10 GPU just like the RX 480. The card will come with 2048 stream processors, spread across 32 GCN compute units, 128 TMUs, 32 ROPs and 4 GB of GDDR5 memory that gets accessed via a 256-bit memory bus. The RX 470 GPU will run at 926 MHz in nominal mode and at 1206 MHz in Turbo mode, while the memory will operate at 6600 MHz and will provide 211 GB/sec of memory bandwidth. The RX 470 will need around 120W of power, which means the card will arrive with an additional 6-pin PCIe power connector.


As to the RX 460 – the card will come with a Polaris 11 GPU, 896 stream processors, 48 TMUs, 16 ROPs and 4 GB of GDDR5 memory. A 128-bit memory bus will serve the memory chips. The GPU of the RX 460 will run at 1090 MHz in nominal mode and at 1200 MHz in Turbo mode, while the memory will operate at 7000 MHz and will provide 112 GB/sec of memory bandwidth. Despite the lower performance compared to the RX 470, the RX 460 will need less power – the card needs 75W of power, which means it will not come with an additional power connector.

The Radeon RX 470 will be launched on August 4, 2016, while the Radeon RX 460 will be with us on August 8. No word on pricing as of now.
