Competition is on, as AMD and NVidia are launching low-powered GPUs but midrange quality graphics card, GPUs that provide decent-to-good performance, low-power efficient for low-budget gamers. 

Recently, Hightech Information System (HIS), Hong Kong-based producer of AMD Radeon graphics card, has announced a new slim AMD RX 460 graphics card, according to a report by Hexus.

HIS reveals RX 460 Slim-iCooler OC 4GB. This GPU is incredibly slim that can fit in small chassis of portable gaming PC. The slim form factor is enabled by HIS's iCooler technology that utilizes a very slim 50mm fan. The fan will not spin as long as the card remains under a GPU temperature of 60 degrees Celsius and turn back to normal when the GPU cools back down to 50 degrees.

Surprisingly, HIS RX 460 is a factory overclock already. The 128-bit 4GB GDDR5 memory runs at 7 Gbps factory clocks. The fan is very silent as it doesn't generate sound as loud as 28dB in "2D mode" even though the 1200MHz card is slightly overclocked to 1220MHz.

In the RX 460 series, HIS RX 460 Slim-iCooler OC 4BG comes in a single-slot configuration and has 75w power requirements. The GPU doesn't need a 6 pin connector as its draws power from pci-e bus allowing to support a system unit that has small power supplies.

 Although it has a thin platform, RX 460 is composed of 14 compute units, 896 stream processors, and a high clock rate that makes it able to push 2.2 teraflops of the performance of the GPU in order to acquire a better performance to enjoy present games at moderate resolutions.

The GPU output supports the HDMI, DVI and Display port, operating system like Linux, Windows 10 and Windows 7.

The availability and pricing of RX 460 Slim iCooler OC 4GB card are not yet disclosed but full details and specifications about the GPU is the company's website
