A highlight of this card from XFX is that the fans are just fitted in slots, and can be easily removed from their places (whilst keeping attached by their cables) for cleaning.

Figure 7 shows the solder side of the RX 460. There are no memory chips on this side. You may notice the PCB is way shorter than the cooler, which have a metallic plate to make the video card longer.

Figure 8 unveils the Radeon RX 460 with the main cooler removed. It has two heatpipes and two 90 mm fans. The cooler touches only the GPU.

In Figure 9 you see the Radeon RX 460 without the cooler. This circuit has four phases for the GPU plus one phase for the memory chips. You can also see the four memory chips.

Another interesting detail is that the PCI Express x16 connector uses only half the lanes, so the video card works up to x8 speed.

In Figure 10 you see the “Baffin” chip, which is manufactured under 14 nm technology.

Figure 9 shows one of the memory chips present at the Radeon RX 460. It is a Micron chip with 5YA47 D9SSX markings, with 8 Gib (1 GiB) capacity. Unfortunately, we were not able to find more information about those chips.
