AMD RX 470 and 460 Launch Dates Leaked; 4th August, 28th July
After AMD RX 480 came out, we were told about the mainstream AMD RX 470 and RX 460 coming out but it has been over a month now and we have got no word from AMD about when exactly we will be getting the 2 other RX series GPUs. This leak tells us when we will finally be seeing the AMD RX 470 and 460.
According to this release date leak, we will be seeing the RX 470 go for sale on the 4th of August and we will see the RX 460 release on the 28th of July. Why is the AMD RX 460 coming out before the AMD RX 470? That is a very good question and something we are trying to figure out ourselves.
Releasing the AMD RX 470 after the 480 and the AMD RX 460 after that would be the right thing to do. I wonder what AMD is planning to do. The AMD RX 470 is for the mainstream gamer who wants to play all games at 1080p and nothing more. With this card, you can get decent FPS at that resolution.
The AMD RX 460, on the other hand, is for light gamers who play MOBAs like League of Legends and DOTA2. AMD has been pretty quiet after the release of the RX 480. But with this leak, it seems that the release of the other 2 RX 400 series cards is closer than what we thought.
The GTX 1060 also came out recently, the GPU beat the RX 480 although only by a few FPS. While some people will not be willing to pay the price difference for such a small increase in performance the GPU is still pretty much sold out everywhere.
