The RX 460 first showed up on Sapphire’s Chinese website listed as a “Sapphire RX460 1024SP 4G D5” with the designation Super Platinum OC, per TechReport. Unfortunately, it seems like this card may never leave eastern shores, so it may be that only Chinese consumers get access to it.
This RX 460 is essentially an unlocked version of Sapphire’s Nitro RX 460, which has a similar layout of DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI-D ports on the back and has the same 4GB of GDDR5 twinned with a 128-bit memory bus.
The clocks haven’t changed from other Sapphire RX 460s though, as the core hits 1,250MHz when boosted. While the stock clock isn’t stated on the listing, it’s likely to be the same as the Sapphire Nitro RX 460, which sits at 1,175Mhz.
Thanks to those added stream processors though, this one should come in a few percent faster than its counterparts. It bridges the gap between the standard RX 460 and the much heftier RX 470, which has double the number of stream processors of even this RX 460.
Since there seems to be no sign of this card ever making it to the U.S., we do not have anything in the way of pricing or availability, but it would be likely to be priced the same, if not a little more, than standard RX 460s, which are around the $120 mark.
