We previously learned that the RX 460 was locked and that people were not getting the full potential of Polaris 11 and while there are ways of unlocking the cards potential I am sure that there are people that would rather buy a new one than fiddle around with advanced settings.

The unlocked XFX RX 460 has 1024 stream processors and has a black and red color scheme which resembles the cards of old. The fans are hard swap fans so you can change then and they are easily removable if you want to clean them and stuff. With the new XFX RX 460 you can expect an 8% increase in performance as compared to the previous version of the GPU.
This performance gain may not be much for some people but looking at the price of the GPU it is great value for money so getting the extra bang for your buck is worth it in the end. You will need a single 6-pin power connector in order to power this GPU.
