In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 460 2GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX Vega 8.

The RX 460 has a 159 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX Vega, but the RX Vega has 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 460. As a result, the RX Vega exhibits a 13.5 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the RX 460. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RX 460 has a 159 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX Vega, but the RX Vega has 16 more Render Output Units than the RX 460. As a result, the RX Vega exhibits a 12.4 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the RX 460. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX Vega was released over a year more recently than the RX 460, and so the RX Vega is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the RX 460.

The RX Vega has 2048 MB more video memory than the RX 460, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RX Vega also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX Vega has 358.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 460, which means that the memory performance of the RX Vega is massively better than the RX 460.

The Radeon RX Vega 8 has 1280 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 460 2GB has 896. However, the actual shader performance of the RX Vega is 841 and the actual shader performance of the RX 460 is 1075. The RX 460 having 234 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the RX Vega performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon RX 460 2GB requires 75 Watts to run but there is no entry for the RX Vega. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the RX Vega and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the RX 460. The RX Vega has been recommended a PSU with 50 Watts more than the RX 460. The difference is significant enough that the RX Vega may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 460.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview Radeon RX Vega M GL is a dedicated Graphics processor found in Intel's Desktop 8th Gen G-Series CPUs. GPU It equips a GPU Codenamed Vega M which offers 20 Compute Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 931MHz and goes up to 1011MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU utilises its own onboard HBM2 memory. Radeon RX Vega M GH has 4GB of second-generation High Bandwidth Memory, clocked at 1.4Gb/s. Sat on a 1024-bit memory interface, this provides total memory bandwidth of 179.2GB/s. Performance The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance similar to a dedicated GeForce GTX 1050. Select the Specific Version you have of this Graphics Card According to your Processor for a more Accurate Rank and experience using our tools. System Suggestions We recommend 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon RX Vega M GH.Overview
Radeon RX 460 2GB is a middle-class graphics card based on the third revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture. Note that there is a 4GB version of the RX 460, which should be considered for future proofing.

It equips a GPU codenamed Polaris 10 which is a 1st gen Polaris GPU, offering 896 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 16 ROPs.

The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it requires at least a 350W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

This graphics card was designed and marketed towards the competitive MOBO gamers. A light weight, small form factor GPU solution that offers mobility, so that gamers travelling to events can bring a smaller cheaper gaming rig. The Radeon RX 460 2GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 1600p screen res and expect around 45+FPS

System Suggestions
Radeon RX 460 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a mid range CPU and 8GB of system memory for optimal performance.
