From esports to VR

Building off its recent announcement of the Radeon RX 480, AMD announced the rest of its RX series graphics cards during the PC Gaming Show: the RX 470 and RX 460.

AMD's RX 470 is a card geared toward efficiency, offering 1080p gaming at high frame rates in a card that runs cool and quiet, according to AMD CEO Lisa Su. The RX 460 is a lower-powered GPU that's meant for lower-intensity games such as esports titles.

The RX 480, which AMD unveiled last month, is designed to deliver virtual reality and 1440p gaming in an affordable package. The 4 GB version of the RX 480 is set to launch June 29 for $199, which is significantly cheaper than Nvidia's current baseline graphics card for VR, the GeForce GTX 970.

Radeon RX series GPUs will support forward-looking technologies, AMD said in a press release. That includes HDR gaming, HDMI 2.0b, and DisplayPort 1.3 and 1.4. AMD did not announce pricing or release dates for the RX 470 or RX 460, although they will presumably be cheaper than the RX 480.
