See How Your Linux GPU Performance Compares To The Radeon RX 460 On Open-Source

As I mentioned in this morning's Early Open-Source Linux Benchmarks Of The AMD Radeon RX 470, coming up tomorrow I will be publishing the first benchmarks of the Radeon RX 460 under Linux in a AMD/NVIDIA graphics card comparison. However, for those impatient, here are some standalone Linux OpenGL benchmarks of the RX 460 on the AMDGPU+RadeonSI driver stack so you can see how your own system compares.

Yesterday I purchased the PowerColor RED DRAGON Radeon RX 460 DirectX 12 AXRX 460 2GBD5-DH/OC graphics card from This is a 2GB Radeon RX 460 graphics card clocked at 1212MHz for its boost frequency. Other Radeon RX 460 "Polaris 11" details have already been talked about.

Tomorrow's RX 460 Linux article will have all of the RX 470 and more Linux numbers from today plus several more GPUs in the mix. There are more than a dozen graphics cards compared for tomorrow's article. Of course, that's just the first of a series of articles with looking at RadeonSI, then AMDGPU-PRO numbers, possibly some Windows 10 comparison results, etc.

But for those anxious to see how this ~$109 PowerColor RX 460 performs, I uploaded some standalone results from the Phoronix Test Suite to

If you just want to look at the individual OpenGL results for this RX 460, see this result file. To see how your own system stacks up, simply install the Phoronix Test Suite on your distribution and then run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1608104-LO-1080PAMDG22. It should be that easy with our open-source benchmarking suite! Stay tuned for the real exciting numbers tomorrow.

Update: The complete RX 460 numbers and more are now available.
