AMD --
Just days after the Radeon RX 470 began shipping, the Radeon RX 460 is shipping this morning and the embargo concerning the RX 460 has expired.

This Polaris 11 graphics card has 14 compute units, 896 stream process, 1090MHz boost clock speed with 1200MHz boost clock speed, and is rated for up to 2.2 TFLOPS of compute power. The video memory is GDDR5 on a 128-bit bus. The TDP for this graphics card is less than 75 Watts.

Pricing on the Radeon RX 460 will begin at $99 USD. This morning most of the graphics cards I am seeing from AIB partners at NewEgg and Amazon are $109~119+ USD.

Similar to the forthcoming RX 470 Linux tests, AMD didn't send over any review samples of the RX 460 either... However, thanks to their low price tag, I already placed an order for a Radeon RX 460 and it looks like it will be arriving tomorrow or Wednesday. Tomorrow my RX 470 Linux review will be posted while by Thursday or Friday then I should have my RX 460 Linux review out there with OpenGL, OpenCL, and Vulkan benchmarks.

For those curious, the Radeon RX 460 I ordered just minutes ago from NewEgg was the cheapest model I found so far: PowerColor RED DRAGON Radeon RX 460 DirectX 12 AXRX 460 2GBD5-DH/OC 2GB. The card cost $109.99, or $125.17 when factoring in tax and shipping.

Stay tuned for many red Linux benchmarks this week! If any Phoronix Premium members have any special test requests, feel free to let me know ASAP so I can try to incorporate them into the Linux reviews.
