MSI unveils a low profile Radeon RX 460 for home theater PCs

MSI just heated up the compact PC gaming market by quietly launching their low profile Radeon  RX 460 graphics card. MSI updated its website with two models, one with 2GB of onboard GDDR5 memory (MSI RX 460 2GT LP) and one with 4GB of memory (MSI RX 460 4GT LP), both on a 128-bit bus.
On paper the configurations are same of both the offering except for the memory size. The card takes two expansion slots and stay cool via two fans all of the running on PCIe slot power with no need for any external power connector.
Its a wise move since the HTPC market is steadily growing and people demand for more and more options to help them game from the comforts of their living room couch, floor or well whatever they like to sprawl upon.

As with many of MSI's products, the low profile Radeon RX 460 uses "military class 4 components," which means both models only use MIL-STD-810G certified parts, including all solid capacitors with an aluminum core design.
The Radeon RX 460 is based on AMD's Polaris 11 GPU architecture with 896 stream processors, 48 TMUs, and 16 ROPs. MSI's low profile version sticks to AMD's reference speed of 1,200MHz (boost). That's good enough to play most games at 1080p, though if you prefer to crank up the eye candy and game at higher resolutions, you'll need something faster.
For the I/O port they've slimmed down the option to just a HDMI port and a DVI-D port. Though no prices have been reveled as of yet but we expect it to be a sub 10K INR card since the MSI Radeon RX 460 2GB OC single fan edition sells for around Rs 10,000 in India.
