In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 590 8GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX 460 4GB.

The RX 590 has a 379 MHz higher core clock speed and 88 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 460. This results in the RX 590 providing 150.5 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RX 590 has a 379 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the RX 460. This results in the RX 590 providing 29.6 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX 590 was released over a year more recently than the RX 460, and so the RX 590 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the RX 460.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The RX 590 has 4096 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 590 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX 590 has 256 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 460, which means that the memory performance of the RX 590 is massively better than the RX 460.

The Radeon RX 590 8GB has 2304 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 460 4GB has 896. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 590 is 3560 and the actual shader performance of the RX 460 is 1075. The RX 590 having 2485 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 590 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 460.

The RX 590 transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RX 460. This means that the RX 590 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RX 460.

The Radeon RX 590 8GB requires 175 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 460 4GB requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 590 and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the RX 460. The RX 590 requires 100 Watts more than the RX 460 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX 590 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 460.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The new AMD Radeon RX 590 is an uprated version of the RX 580 on the smaller 12nm process node.

This RX 590 is the 8GB version.

Architecture
It equips a GPU codenamed Polaris 30, which has 2304 shader processing units, 144 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The RX 590 8GB central processing unit runs at 1545MHz and goes up to (xx)MHz when in boost and turbo mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock operates at 2000MHz.

Power Consumption
The RX 590 8GB has a power TDP requirement of 150W. This means it will require at least a 500W PSU with one dedicated 8-pin connector.

Performance
Early benchmarks indicate that the AMD Radeon RX 590 8GB will be around 10-15% faster than the Nvidia GTX 1060 in terms of gaming performance, and around 6% faster than the Radeon RX 580 model it is replacing.

System Suggestions
The new Radeon RX 590 8GB releases on the 30th October 2018 and is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a high-end processor, like the new Ryzen R5 and at least 12GB of RAM for optimal gaming performance.
Overview
Radeon RX 460 4GB is an Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the 4th Generation of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Baffin XT which has 14 Compute Units activated and thus 896 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 16 ROPs.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB 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.

Performance
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 4GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 1600p screen res and expect around 45+FPS

System Suggestions
Radeon RX 460 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
