Radeon RX 460 Sapphire Nitro 2G D5 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon RX 460 Sapphire Nitro 2G D5 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.


Architecture
It equips a GPU codenamed Baffin PRO which is a 3rd gen Pascal GPU, offering 896 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 16 ROPs.


Memory
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.


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 Sapphire Nitro 2G D5 can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 1600p screen res and expect around 45+FPS


System Suggestions
Radeon RX 460 Sapphire Nitro 2G D5 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a mid range CPU and 8GB of system memory for optimal performance.

In your particular case, the only "heavy" power consumer is the E8400 and it just has a 65w tdp so it should be fine, the card uses about 70 ish watts under load and since it feeds itself directly from the mobo (dont know why the page says 6-pin required) it will feed from the same 12v rail with the mobo al the time.

A little, I suppose. Not that much, still enjoyable. I would take a stronger CPU, such as a new Zen when they come out, if you want to stay with AMD.

Most of the time you won't see any performance gains in the 4GB version. You'll only notice a difference in VRAM heavy games. But yes the card should be sufficient for any game currently out @ 1366x768 & at the very least solid 30 fps.

Guys, I would like to know if this card can handle the Triple A titles at at least high settings 30 fps on 1080p. I'm really considering buying this card where I live. If it does, it will be enough for me.

Yes it will. Most tripple A titles @ 30fps or maybe even 60 fps. See online benchmark results. This is a good gpu for the price and amount of power consumption.

I just got this. So far it can max out tomb raider 2013 with TressFX active and get solid 60 fps. Resolution i'm using is 1366x768. Not bad for the price.
