AMD’s upcoming mobile Radeon RX 460 graphics card is said to come with performance output that is almost similar to that of its desktop counterpart. Interestingly, the first gaming notebook to be equipped with the Radeon GPU would be HP’s upcoming 15.6-inch OMEN Limited Edition notebook.
The performance comparison chart between both the mobile and desktop Radeon RX 460 GPU has been released by AMD and it shows some pretty interesting information. Looking at the charts, one can clearly establish that the desktop graphics card is indeed faster, but the performance difference between it and the mobile RX 460 isn’t that significant. In fact, when tested on Dota 2, the average frames per second of the notebook GPU surpasses the desktop RX 460 graphics card, albeit only slightly.
That said, before one goes out and buy RX 460-equipped notebooks, it’s worth pondering upon the fact that this isn’t the GPU that will allow one to play AAA games at 60fps on maxed settings. The Radeon RX 460 is and always has been a graphics card aimed at gamers who primarily play non graphics intensive eSports titles such as Dota 2, League of Legends, and Overwatch.
