Morning, folks. As you read this, you're no doubt beginning to sort through a deluge of Radeon RX 460 reviews. I'd love to have made TR's among them, but FedEx put the handsome 4GB Sapphire card you see below in my hands just moments before the press embargo lifted. The good news is that the rest of the cards I wanted to bench the RX 460 against have all been tested, and I just need to plop AMD's mighty mite into our test system and go. It'll be interesting to see what the RX 460 can do in the $109-and-up price class.
Our review won't just be of AMD's latest card, however. I spent my weekend familiarizing myself with the ins and outs of PresentMon, so we now have a wealth of DirectX 12 and Vulkan data to share with you in addition to good old DirectX 11. I expect it'll be interesting. Stay tuned as we work to complete the review—it's my hope we'll have the vast majority of it done by the end of the day.
