AMD teases Radeon RX 470, Radeon RX 460 and Zen at PC Gaming Show

Posted on Monday, June 13 2016 @ 21:51:11 CEST by


A couple of moments ago AMD CEO Lisa Su took up the stage at the PC Gaming Show event. If you forgot to tune in to the webcast, the good news is you don't miss anything exciting.

Su talked with the host about how AMD wants to capture the mainstream gaming market with Polaris and how they want to make virtual reality available to the average gamer. Then someone from the red team showcased the upcoming virtual reality backpack from Alienware, which promises to give you full freedom to move around when playing a VR game.

Probably the most interesting part of the presentation was the reveal of the "entire" Radeon RX lineup. AMD's CEO pulled three cards out of a briefcase but those hoping to see a Radeon RX 490 will be disappointed, it seems there won't be anything faster than the RX 480 until the arrival of Vega. Su said there are three Radeon RX video cards, the first one being the recently revealed Radeon RX 480. That model ships June 29th with pricing starting at $199.

The other two cards are pictured below, the small card with the tiny cooler is the Radeon RX 460 and the larger card (without a finished cooler) is the Radeon RX 470. She said the RX 470 is aimed at 1080p HD gaming and the RX 460 is for e-sports. Not a lot of details were shared, we don't know the specifications, pricing nor launch dates.
Lisa Su, CEO of AMD, confirmed that RX 460 will have a TDP below 75W and new card will not require any additional power connectors. This model will likely be equipped with three display outputs: DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort.

Meanwhile RX 470 is confirmed to be based on Polaris 10. The final design of the cooler was not shown, but we had the opportunity to see the PCB, which compared to RX 480 is also powered by one 6-pin power connector.

There was also some more teasing of the Zen processor, Su said everything Zen-related is still a secret so all she got for us was another video shot at an AMD lab. The footage showed Doom running on what is claimed to be a PC with a Zen processor, but extremely little information was given.
