XFX AMD RX 460’s – Crossfire On The Cheap!

July 30, 2019 posted by


hey what’s going on tech fans welcome back once again detective tomorrow right now we’re just playing a little titanfall to know this games really fun and today we’re actually playing this game with two RX for sixties in crossfire now both these cards are provided by the company XFX we are paid no money for this review what’s or buts the cards were donated for free with that said I gotta say that these cars and crossfire for the price range is pretty doggone good could you can actually get both these cards for under 300 bucks so it’s pretty much crossfire on the cheap now both these XFX cards have the identical specs down the road the core clock on both cards is set at 1,200 20 megahertz there’s 800 tonight extreme processors 228 bit memory interface 7,000 megahertz on the memory clock minimum power supply recommend this board wants to really the only difference we can do two cards were using in today’s configuration is that one has a fan and one does not there’s no power connection required other than the pcie and as far as the cards look the one with the fan has a red top shroud and a single fan design the car that his family’s it’s totally different that it just features a heatsink on top with no fan whatsoever which means it’s also totally silent there’s already been a bunch of reviews out about the RX for 60 but today’s video is pretty much about bringing those cars to the table and crossfire now the test system that we’re using its the mirrors edge systems you guys happen to miss that video will have a link down below if you want to check out what we use now all cars were tested on Windows 10 with the latest updates as well as the latest drivers from AMD with that said though let’s check out ten games in crossfire with the RX 460 from XX and like i said earlier folks the only real difference between the cards the temperatures you guys can see the difference between the two and make up your mind which car would you actually see your build at the end of the day I must say though that these cards scale very well as you guys can see the RX 460 and cross fires almost double the scores across the board competing with higher end cards if you’re somebody who like those kind of numbers you can get this crossfire system like I said for under three hundred dollars it’s pretty much crossfire on the chief I’m network you guys been watching second tomorrow thanks for viewing the channel down below that like button will have all the information about these cards you can choose the one that suits your build rock on we’ll see you guys here for more tech on second tomorrow

    what does cf stand for

  2. Unkown C says:

    processor??

  3. Viking Crusher says:

    will the crossfire work with RX 460 and RX 480? and if so how much performance you get?

  4. jaradipra says:

    why there's David Draiman pic at the end of the video?

  5. Sukhoi47Berkut1 says:

    muy interesante, eso es genial para alguien con un presupuesto muy apretado, puede comprarse una buena motherboard y un procesador y comprarse una RX460, y al actualzar, en lugar de gastarse 250$ para cambiar de tarjeta por una 480 o por una 1060 simplemente compra otra 460 por 99$, asi reduce mucho los costos, y en caso de que quiera actualizar por algo mucho mas pesado luego, puede vender las dos 460

  6. Paulie Nordaker says:

    see im in a spot i have the msirx460 oc'd to 1347mhz +36 volts and ram @ 1886mhz 2gig ram but im seriously looking at xfx rx470 triple or the black edition as i want the hard swap blue led fans and it has 4 gb ram

  7. Tung Pham Minh says:

    What RX 480 did you use for the test?

  8. Curious Wars says:

    For those saying a single card is better, you misunderstand the point of low end crossfire. This is a solution for people who can barely afford to get a system that has the 460 in it. Then 6 months later when they have another 100 dollars they can buy a second. It's a way for poor folks to build a reasonably powerful gaming system over time.

  9. God Emperor Meow says:

    "They scale real well," no they don't dude. sorry

  10. Luca Maistre says:

    tjis would be a good future upgrade if u want more performance for cheap like 2years from now or 3

  11. Korwynias Wolfdrake says:

    $100+ IS NOT CHEAP!!!

  12. B W says:

    Would you flash the crossfire RX 460 bois cards to see if you could get better fps.

  13. dogboy0912 says:

    The ideal situation to try crossfire is if you already bought one, then your mate sells you their identical card for practically nothing. Well hey, at least it's not useless, right?

  14. Grace X says:

    what happen with the overwatch?

  15. gmrb79s says:

    this is stupid considering you can have the same 2X-CF-perfomance with a single $159 rx480

  16. Mr11ESSE111 says:

    rx 470 custom for 150-160 would perform better cost less

  17. Max Wolf says:

    They still make cards without fans? The red XFX looks nice as fuck btw.

  18. Guillotedice guillotedice says:

    Buy a rx480

  19. Jeremy Doss says:

    this is so pointless. $265 for crappy crossfire. its not optimized, your gonna hit alot of bugs and most games dont even support it. for that price buy a 480 or a 1060 or save $120 more and get a 1070 that absolutely destroys those cards. theres no reason for this video to even exist

  20. WesSites says:

    No one should do this unless they just want to… price to performance isn't there. But it's a cool proof of concept…

  21. declde says:

    That's some incredible scaling from AMD's side though.

  22. Philo Jewett says:

    You can pick up these GPU's on Ebay for like $75 each. 🙂

  23. Zalphor says:

    still sitting on my XFX Radeon HD 7850s. crossfire isn't always supported but driver updates can help. I got the second one on Craigslist for 50 bucks so it's not a bad deal.

    I think what people need to see here is that you don't have to buy new to do crossfire. and if your buying a used card for anywhere near full price then your shooting yourself in the foot. buy a RX460 new then if you need the power later go buy a used one and see if you can't get the price dropped.

    if your not playing intensive games then you probably don't need an RX480 right now. unless you want to "future proof".

    not to mention that usually my second cards fan doesn't kick up all that high so even if the fan is crap or you have a passive cooler heats no big deal. and I have no doubt it's probably saving the life of my original card because it's not always running at 90 to 100 % all the time like it had to previously.

  24. Louisarius says:

    Although the cost would be pretty bad, the scaling of these cards is just awesome.

    Up to 2/3 the performance gain

  25. acodizal gsang says:

    can i crossfire a 2gig version and a 4 gig version?

  26. william reintjes says:

    holy shit, amazing results. but still thinking of just going for 1 rx 480

  27. Bogusław Łęcina Usługi budowlano-remontowe says:

    will 550w psu do the work for this crossfire?

  28. Baruch says:

    What's with the 1060 temperatures? These are founders edition numbers but I don't recall Zotac releasing a 1060 founders.

  29. anikanbounty97 says:

    mine doesnt have cross fire support. It the gigabyte version

  30. Bryan Dominick Velarde says:

    people only argue in the comments, this video can be for someone that has an rx 460 in their rig already and is thinking about upgrading a GPU. If you're on a budget this could be a good option since its only about 94 – 100 dlls for one of these cards.

  31. deicide says:

    wait a second, has cf been like this before? the jump in performance gain is twice than non-cf. i thought it would be like 20% only. never looked into it because i only have hd7850 before and now rx470.

  32. Kian Grey says:

    I was a bit surprised that it scaled that well in terms of average fps tbh, it was pretty much close to 100% scaling which is amazing

  33. Connar Comstock says:

    Cool idea, never thought about sticking a pair of 460's in Crossfire. I think this video illustrates pretty well though that you are generally just better off getting a 480 instead of a pair of 460s.

  34. Shield Lord Knight says:

    So, do you recommend crossfire if I already have a rx 460, a good PSU and a good motherboard?

  35. Nirap Singh says:

    amd is kind of a boss when it comes to scaling across cores of a cpu and a crossfire setup

  36. Bruce Miller says:

    I would love to see more recent crossfire reviews. I currently have an 8350 with a single xfx 480 but I want to upgrade to two 480's and Ryzen in the future but there is not much out there on it.

    I know this is a little old but I found my 8gb 480 for $160 at micro center. That plus a ryzen cpu should be awesome for the money.

  37. Ferdian Aditya says:

    thx for the information for the score of the rx460 crossfire, this is gonna help me a lot, because some of my friend thinking RX460 can't crossfire 😞😞

    because im going to do same thing like you do @techoftomorrow 😊😊

  38. Tobias Sandberg says:

    do you have an explanation for the overwatch result? noticed that the single 460 lost 8 fps gping from 1080 to 1440 and gained over a 100% scaling in crossfire. is the scaling the same with 470 or 480?

  39. Aun Shah says:

    a single rx 480 8gb on sale will cost the same and crush this performance

  40. Frank Nakamo says:

    What about two of those 460 fanless, that would make a good combination, is any of those cards compatible with a Dell Optiplex 780SFF

  41. Salavat Ryskaliyev says:

    almost double perfomance with CF… not bad

  42. dogboy0912 says:

    460s are now as low as $75. How does it change the equation?

  43. Like Clockwork64 says:

    This normally would be worth it but the RX 480 and GTX1060 are extremely competitive products in their price range. You are better off getting the RX480 8GB

  44. tdek33 says:

    considering a single 2gb 460 costs approx £80 now a pair for 160 is less than a 470 and 10 more than the average 1050ti and same as the 1060 so i would happily buy 2 460s in crossfire

  45. Mark Griffin says:

    Something is really fishy with these numbers. Titan Fall 2 in particular.

  46. Stephen Alexander says:

    why would you spend money on xfx rx 460 4g cf that costs around $280(exc. the motherboard that supports cf,it isn't cheap)when you can spend cheaper on rx 480 8g for around $200-$240,for better performance?

    bad option tbh imo

  47. Faizal Atan says:

    Gotta Build This PC
    I5 4460/FX8320 (Which Should I Get?)
    RX 460 4GB Crossfire
    16GB DDR3/8GB DDR4

  48. MeatPopsycle says:

    Which of the 460s was the one with lower temps?? Also, better idea to just get a 480, if going by the numbers alone.

  49. dra6o0n says:

    In the coming weeks, the RX 500 series including the 560 will come out, as a result you will see a price slash on all RX 400 series in the near future by a bit, because the newer cards are a little more power efficient and may see performance increase to match the gains (~15% increase).

    Not to mention that it'd be possible for owners of 460 to buy a 560 and crossfire them at cheap, or buy a used, cheaper 460 at that point.

  50. Luke Davies says:

    can get 2 rx470s in xfire for £300/$325 in the uk

  51. Connar Comstock says:

    Whoa dat scaling in Overwatch, holy crap.

  52. gojo modu says:

    Have you ever tried to Cossfire a 460 with a 480 or 470?

  53. Clarkent Bernardino says:

    rx 460 is better than rx 550 right ?

  54. Bredbeddle deHautdesert says:

    I've been looking around…. is that single slot 460 the fastest single slot gpu on the market?

  55. Flames Tornado says:

    hey guys I really need your help in this:
    2x rx 460 4gb(crossfire)
    = rx 460 8gb
    is that possible in directx 12?

  56. SEBASTIAN ODE says:

    fk that
    2 rx 460 here cost the same as 1 gtx 1060

  57. Kobae says:

    How much FPS is it getting?

  58. Rami Bos says:

    Gameplay shown! yey!

  59. Rami Bos says:

    This is relevant now when all its RX big brothers are gone to mine Ethereum or smthg FFS

    Also, weren't this cores unlockable? to the GTX 1050 performance levels

  60. SinHasBeenYoutube says:

    Now that the rx 480 cost 300 dollars, should I get two 460s?

  61. HendrikNeville says:

    Would dual rx 460s bottneck a G4560?

  62. Manda Santoso says:

    I dunno, I prefer to just buy Sapphire RX 470…. or 570

  63. Randy Hulsebos says:

    Wow, that scaling in Overwatch! :O

  64. A6Trinity says:

    This is actually a really good option considering the scalping being done with the higher end RX 400s and 500s

  65. MrShelbyGTman says:

    Well yeah you'll double performance with double the GPU and VRAM.

  66. MrShelbyGTman says:

    It also depends on the game. Some games can not run Crossfire or SLI.

  67. KromeAlien says:

    Quick question. Can I CF / XFX – AMD Radeon RX 460 4 GB Graphics Cards?

  68. Mátyás Fekete says:

    now it's worth it much more 😀
    Rx 480s and 580s costing 500+$

  69. Bhume says:

    Anyone think this is a more viable solution with the mining craze thats happening? you can also buy these used on ebay for cheap too, so this may actually be worth it now.

  70. Gecko War says:

    since rx470 rx480 rx570 rx580 gone with mine this may suitable way to gaming

  71. Florida Man says:

    80-90% is nothing to sniff at.

  72. SjanST Official says:

    If I have an XFX RX 480 8gb GTR black editio, can I put an ASUS RX580 8gb ROG with the 3 fan?

  73. Bill_Mccoy says:

    Now do a video about 2 RX 460 Unlocked + Overclocked and in a Crossfire configuration

  74. Umar Fahim says:

    with the the shortage of rx 570s and 580s due to mining, this crossfire setup actually seems like a very worthwhile investment. You can get two cheaper rx 560s running for $200-220. Or wait months until you can find a 580, but I have a feeling it's gonna be marked up even when it is in stock again.

  75. Brandon Bridges says:

    my local Microcenter had a bunch of open box RX 460s for pretty much under half retail. Picked up 2 of them for 60 USD.

  76. Brandon Horan says:

    I have 2 560s in CG because a 470 570 480 580 is impossible to buy right now

  77. Crazy Tubex says:

    I got 2 460 4gb for 100 bucks each .

  78. Thiago Machado says:

    Da para fazer Crossfire RX 550 Sapphire ?

  79. FabStream41 says:

    this actually makes sense now, seeing that all the mid range amd cards have all been snatched up.

  80. vawa-ID says:

    today I get 80 dollar rx 460, so in the future I can just upgrade by adding another rx 460?

  81. Good Mann says:

    well, i cant buy a rx 470 so i'm thinking into buying me a second rx 460. just until you can buy the cards again.

  82. Pookano says:

    How it possible in the Overwatch?!! 3:34

  83. Malcolm Reynolds says:

    No lo sé Rick ,parece falso .

  84. MàTTáM says:

    I found 2 used RX560 4GB for $190. 😂😂😂▶▶▶▶

  85. Regilio Bouma says:

    right now i might think about getting 2 of those 🙂 even if its 2gb 🙂 i mean 60euro for 1 is no not bad

  86. Fruiplusel - Crunchy Rainbow says:

    i like it the way you benchmark Game on first part of video

  87. Fruiplusel - Crunchy Rainbow says:

    Have you try this on Ryzen Threadripper ??

  88. Catalin Manea says:

    Its ok to crossfire the rx 460 !? ( 480 / 580 its almost 500$ in my country )I can get the 460 for 70$ from a friend btw….

  89. Jeffrey Bozko says:

    wow, i have 2 460´s, bought em for 70 each….. 480 destroyer xD

  90. V says:

    RX 460/560 are performing worse than a R9 270X from 2013. The price difference isn't even all that much when both cards were new. The state of the GPU market is fucking shit.

  91. Mocanu Octavian43 says:

    Did you had any bugs?

  92. vmreviews says:

    But, You didn't speak about the stuttering issue. It's present in few game titles and in some titles, it's unbearably worse !

  93. Alan D1 says:

    It would have been nice to see a RX470 in the mix. I've read the RX460 in CF is equal to a RX470. Also what memory size is used on both 2G and 4G or 4G on both. I have an RX460 4G and considering buying a 2G fanless for CF.

  94. Ⰲⰵⱍⱀⰰ Ⰿⰰⰽⰵⰴⱁⱀⰻⱑ says:

    Evage high gpu prices 101.

  95. Pekka says:

    Crossfiring two 460´s is making more and more sense now that the high end card prices are trough the roof. I can get 2 x RX 460 4gb versions used for around 100-120€ as for the 480s the used ones are actually more than what they were new! Used 480s are close to or over 300€ here. I could get a used 1050 ti for 150€, but two rx 460s will be cheaper and more performance than the 1050ti. The 1050 ti is a good card though if you have limited psu.

  96. jonny c 2.0 says:

    look let me pay u for shiling i need a card email me i am a youtuber lmk if u need a ked work shop light i make u one for my card thats ny habby makeing led lights

  97. clip's says:

    When I went to buy my 1050 ti, the RX 460 4gb was $80 on Amazon and the 1050 to was $158. The crossfire set-up would have been 2$ more and alot better to (free-sync)

  98. Terry Connor says:

    Just a note, if you have one of the many SFF pre-builds from Dell, Lenovo, Compaq or HP with two Pcie slots, this is the fastest low profile option available. (Be aware that some Dell models can't use 2 dual slot cards, since the full length slots are next to each other)

  99. homelessEh says:

    crossfired hd3450/hd2400xt's = lololol wtf no. crossfire hd4670's actually Great for the time in the 3 games that used cf. hd4850/4870/4890's pointless completely pointless lol….. stopped paying attention to crossfire due to shrinking support for it. if only they could do something cool like dedicate 1 card for all desktop needs and dedicate other card for gaming and intigrate some kind of Software Assisted Picture in picture Display. . but nay..

  100. Vydonis says:

    THESE CARDS COST 65 DOLLARS AVERAGE ON AMAZON/ELSEWHERE
