The entry level video card market, targeted to budget gaming computers, is one of the most important ones, since not every gamer want or can buy a high-end video card. So, our first conclusion is that even a simple and inexpensive video card like the Radeon RX 460 can run recent games in Full HD and intermediate video quality with a good framerate, allowing a satisfying gaming experience.
Compared to the Radeon R7 360, which is its predecessor in this segment, the Radeon RX 460 evolved a lot: it was faster on all the tests, even with a lower TDP.
Compare to its direct competitor, the GeForce GTX 750 Ti, the Radeon RX 460 also proved to be faster on all the tests, being a better option (besides being compatible with DirectX 12). Actually, the XFX Radeon RX 460 performed close to the GeForce GTX 950.
So, the Radeon RX 460 from XFX proved to be an excellent new actor on the value/entry video card scenario. The question, however, is the price you will find it at your dealer: if it costs near a GeForce GTX 750 Ti, the Radeon RX 460 is a better deal. But if its price is close to a GeForce GTX 950, in this case the NVIDIA card is a better choice.
