XFX releases Radeon RX 460 video card with passive cooling

AMD’s Radeon RX 460 video card does not come with the most powerful hardware there is and this is the reason why the card needs relatively little power. Add to this the power-efficient 14 nm Polaris 11 GPU and you start to think of a passively cooled Radeon RX 460 video card.

XFX has gotten there already – the Taiwanese company has just launched the industry’s first 100 per cent passively-cooled Radeon RX 460 graphics card. Unfortunately we do not have the model name (in China the card is known as XFX Radeon RX 460 Black Wolf but this is a translation from Chinese) and the tech specs are also missing but we do know that this card comes with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory and a massive heat sink that features two heat pipes. Of course here we cannot talk about any factory overclock but the Radeon RX 460 by XFX also lacks an additional power connector. Due to the passive cooling solution, however, the card needs two expansion slots. According to tests, the temperature of the card sits between 32ºC and 62ºC but this also depends on the loading and the temperature of the case the XFX Radeon RX 460 sits in.

In China the XFX Radeon RX 460 Black Wolf sells for USD 149. It is unclear if this card will visit other shores, how much it will cost there and under what brand name it will sell.
