Recently it was uncovered that the Radeon RX 460 was not being used to its fullest potential and that there were some stream processors that were being locked from use. This means that users were not able to tap into the full potential of the Polaris 11 GPU. Although there is a way of getting access to those locked stream processors, Sapphire Radeon RX 460 Nitro OC has been officially launched and it is a full Polaris 11 GPU.

The Sapphire Radeon RX 460 Nitro OC will be bumming out people that bought the locked version but this is great news for people that are looking for an entry level GPU for 2017. Although the GTX 1050 and the GTX 1050Ti have been launched but the Sapphire Radeon RX 460 Nitro OC is still a great competitor for the price.

Unlike the GTX 1050 and the GTX 1050Ti that are plug and play, the Sapphire Radeon RX 460 Nitro OC does need a 6-pin power connector which will come in handy in overclocking the GPU. Although the GPU does come factory overclocked I bet there is still some juice in this GPU that overclocking enthusiasts will make the most out of.

The dual fans should help out when it comes to temperatures. Saphire has introduced a couple of great GPUs in the past and we expect nothing but the best from this one as well.

Although there is no information regarding the pricing and availability of the Sapphire Radeon RX 460 Nitro OC our rough estimate is that all things considered the Sapphire Radeon RX 460 Nitro OC will cost about $119, we will let you know about the official pricing and when you can buy this.
