The RX 480 may be sitting at the top of AMD’s Polaris family, but it was clear from the beginning it wouldn’t be the only card. The RX 470 and RX 460 were announced shortly after the RX 480’s release, though their targeting was vague, to say the least. Now we know — the RX 480 is for 1440p resolution, the RX 470 is for 1080p, and the RX 460 targets “eSports performance” – which means less demanding titles like League of Legends and Counter Strike: Global Offensive.

The RX 480 starts at $200, which is already cheaper than Nvidia’s entry-level GTX 1060, which is $250. And the new RX 470 is even more budget-friendly, starting at $179, or $20 less than the RX 480. That puts it right in line with the GTX 950 and 960, and within spitting distance of the Editor’s Choice award-winning RX 480.
