$100 dollar card not £100, it's not worth £50, 70w, running hot, can't match the previous gen NVidia 950, the 270x is better and the NVidia 750ti is about on the same perf, lol i'll pass.
What utter nonsense. On what planet is 70W considered a lot of power? Because it's not this one. It's completely unrealistic to expect anything more than this kind of level of performance from a slot-powered card with a mere 75W to work with. And before you even start with bringing up the slot-powered GTX 950 that Asus released, let's not forget that that card had severely depressed performance compared to a regular 950.

https://abload.de/img/asus_950_2g_gtav15mzaw.png

The idea that this consuming 70W is bad and that it "runs hot" is absolute nonsense. The worst kind of rabid fanboy bluster. As is suggesting that this performs akin to a 750 Ti. It does not. It actually performs almost identically to the R7 370/7850, which as you'll see is akin to the slot-powered 950 up there, which is a more expensive card (and which people were hailing as some remarkable feat of engineering a couple of months ago, yet suddenly when AMD produce a near-identical card it's a disaster... strange that).

Its a massive disappointment not even worth looking at, 70w for that performance and heat with no overclocking headroom is poor, would never condone with a purchase.
So you'd rather pay £30 more for the same performance?
Not sure what your referring to maybe the 950 but you'd be wrong pls look at the video post I left, pls get things straight b4 posting.
The 750 ti uses 15W less for around the same perf b4 you overclock which you can't do on the 460, most of the oc is already on the card so an oc vs stock 750ti is about a %1 loss for the 750ti but then has it's oc to add.
That video, is one guys comparison. I've seen others which say its 950 level performance on some games, less on some titles and more on some titles.

Its pretty much the AMD version of the GTX 950: Same performance and power draw

And nowhere did AMD say it was $100, simply a budget card, which it is
Newegg have it for $115 which is £88. Add tax and £98 is fair for UK pricing

The 750 ti uses 15W less for around the same perf b4 you overclock which you can't do on the 460, most of the oc is already on the card so an oc sapphire 460 vs stock 750ti is about a %1 loss for the 750ti but then has all it's oc to add.(card dependant)

The point was that the 950 being more powerful while consuming 15w less makes this 460 s**t as for fanboy lol typical, I have had 8 amd cards and 1 NVidia card a long ago.
I waited for these crappy rx series and it now look like im buying my 2nd NVidia card buy hey if you love this then buy it.
Oh and in future read what people say instead of rambling crap.

As for the other stuff did you notice that every card released by amd lines up with NVidia's last gen parts, hardly earth shattering stuff from AMD and there supposed new efficient power house polaris chip, if I'm a fan boy its an amd one, they were always my goto cards but after this release I can't buy there cards.
There not innovating there behind on perf and efficiency now all there cards this gen are overpriced, it now looks like a 1060 for me but even that isn't my first choice as stated I was hoping for the rx 480 until I saw in order to get the perf I have to turn up the power slider to get the advertised perf, and guess what ? as soon as I do I'm way over my 150w I'm now at 220w for the advertised perf that's not progress, in-fact they crippled the chip to make it look more power efficient after NVidia's 1070 release with 8 pins.

The 1060 consumes 110w active at stock and 135w overclocked past 2ghz, after the overclock the 1060 is more than 20% faster than the fastest rx480, and at £230 same price as the rx480, but hey man believe what you like, it's your £££.

lol ok man, it's a sad and very childish thing to do it changes nothing and I stated my peace, it's your money and I don't care about the rating of a deal, there are more videos up though all stating pretty much the same , well except a strange testing stating the 750 ti is 30% behind the 460, but again the 950 and 460 @ stock are an even match but the 950 wins after overclock while consuming 15w less.

Sorry but this card is not as good as the 950 in any benchmarks I've seen.The new architecture is irrelevant at this level.

If you want a sub £100 card wait for the 950s to drop in the next couple weeks or better save for a RX470/80.

I don't think there would be a huge difference as if this card is based to level a 950 which is technically a re released 760 ti with new architecture etc. I don't think you'd gain more than 5/10 FPS but cost wise it's a good card IMO before anyone disagrees and argues with me on it.

After the 480 I was really hoping amd might have pulled something out the bag. If nvidia release a 1050 ti for sub £150, slot powered, even better low profile and double the performance of the 750ti I'd buy it in a heartbeat. Sadly I think it will be £175 or more giving AMD a fighting chance.

£100, it's probably a tad slower than a GTX950. It's a great improvement on the GTX950 prices for sure but these aren't great price performance ratio cards.

To be honest unless you must have new, when you're on a tight budget price point like this you're probably better off with a decent used card. A used GTX770/R9 280X can be had for about this price, and both fairly batter this.

Yes I know I know, it's used and not got the warranty blah blah but it's a very low risk buy. If it's working well when you get it, chances are it'll work well for the next 10 years. Quality PC components like (formerly) expensive cards usually last for eternity. I have built dozens of budget machines for people and never had one come back with a defective used card. First time for everything, but I wouldn't be very concerned.

Either go for a 480 or a 1060, I'm waiting to see how nvidias drivers pan out over next 4 months before deciding at Xmas whether to upgrade my 750ti based media centre or sod it and buy a PS4 neo.

mixed feeling on this card, the 4gb version is better, as the 2GB bottlenecks 'some games' at 1080p.....
but this is a Video Card more for RTS types....
Spend £20-£30 more and get a R9380 (new) or a used GTX 770 for like £115, both are a fair bit faster.... but obviously power consumption is double or more

​for £100 this isn't great value. I was surprised to see a 7790 (which I own) in the same bench mark. when you can pick up a RX480 for £80-100 more and get triple the performance it's not value for money. If the extra money isn't available perhaps 270X they must be cheap on eBay these days?

This card is a marketing joke, not something that is actually good for consumers.

It's performance can't even compete with 2+ generations ago.

AMD made a statement "We will offer cards for 100-300". They have lived up to those words.

But they did the bare min to do so at $100.
