How well can the Radeon RX 460 MSI OC 2GB run games
28 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this Radeon RX 460 MSI OC 2GB graphics card can still meet and run indie system requirements and some of the less demanding AAA games. Radeon RX 460 MSI OC 2GB is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

What FPS performance can the Radeon RX 460 MSI OC 2GB get on latest AAA 2019 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 135 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the Radeon RX 460 MSI OC 2GB can run Call of Duty: Modern Warfare at 1080p and saw it return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 37 FPS, Medium: 29 FPS, High: 20 FPS and Ultra: 14 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order returns a weak 0 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on the Radeon RX 460 MSI OC 2GB to see that it got a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 28FPS, M: 22FPS, H: 15FPS, U: 11FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order which seemed weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 0 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Cyberpunk 2077 where its predicted Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 0 FPS. 1440p Radeon RX 460 MSI OC 2GB PC gaming is going to underperform if you try and run modern games.

How many years will the Radeon RX 460 MSI OC 2GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 460 MSI OC 2GB in your PC? There is around 6-12 months of top end gaming left in this card, at which point its graphics card replacement time, assuming the Radeon RX 460 MSI OC 2GB is part of your PC gaming machine.
