AMD has announced three new Polaris cards that promise not to be a burden on your wallet.
The Radeon RX 460, RX 470 and RX 480 were all revealed at E3’s PC Gaming show.
The Radeon RX 480 expected to be fully VR-capable, with the RX 470 and RX 460 designed for 1,440p and Full HD gaming respectively.
“The products include the Radeon RX 480 graphics card, which can run virtual reality on a PC for prices starting at $200 for a four-gigabyte version. AMD is also showing the Radeon RX 470 and the Radeon RX 460 cards. They go on sale on June 29.”
“The Radeon RX 480 can run games at a 1440p resolution and in VR settings. The 470 is geared for high-definition resolution games, while the 460 is targeted as quiet chips capable of delivering esports experiences such as League of Legends”, reports VentureBeat.
You can check out the RX 480’s early specifications below:
- Can run VR on both Oculus and HTC Vive.
