Sapphire announces Radeon RX 460 with 1024 Stream Processors

Published: 17th Jan 2017, 09:38 GMT

Sapphire figured out that selling partially disabled Polaris 11 chips is not exactly the best marketing decision. Especially when most RX460 cards on the market are already unlockable to full 1024 Stream Processor version without much problem.

As a result, Sapphire is now offering fully unlocked Radeon RX 460. This version has Polaris 11 GPU with all 16 Compute Units enabled. So rather than wait for Radeon 500 series and Polaris refresh, you can now actually buy the full chip.

I’m not exactly sure why RX 460 did not get the full chip in the first place, but it’s good to know that we finally have this option, but unfortunately.. this card is only listed on Chinese Sapphire’s website, so it may be an exclusive product for Chinese market, just as Radeon RX 470D.

Finally, the new NITRO has 4GB GDDR5 memory on board and 1250 MHz core clock.
