Our first stop-off was to pick up the Delta H RXN, the latest of the brand’s flagship-class models, to see how it compared to the rest of the market’s offerings. We’ll talk at some length about its differences compared to its more aggressive rivals, but in short it lacks the ability to take full advantage of AMD’s Ryzen architecture or take advantage of an additional DVI port or the like. But it can still deliver some of both, and it does feature decent audio.
The most interesting aspect of the RXN is the RX 460 – its power draw numbers, which are very similar to the RX 400 series. But even here, the RX 460 isn’t the highest model in its class when compared to its competition; the RX 470 clocks at 1666MHz (though that is just the power limit), while the RX 500/500S has 1833MHz (1667Mhz + +). And the RX 500M is in the category of AMD’s top-of-the-line APUs: the RX 550, which packs an Intel Core i7-6700K CPU, 16GB of RAM and a GTX 1070.

Moving on, there is a large gap between the RX 480 and the RX 570, and it’s also a big gap between the RX 560 and the RX 460. The RX560 is slightly more expensive, and the RX 560 is faster, but at the same time it lacks the more powerful processor for better overall graphics performance. The RX 560 also features a more reasonable clock speed than the 460 but the RX 570 and the RX480 have faster memory.

The RX 470 also includes an extra DVI port that was only previously on the RX 400 Series. This was a surprise, as none of the other RX400/500 series cards from AMD feature an additional DVI port.

Finally, the performance of the new RX 500 series is something we didn’t expect. With the RX 480 being just a little bit faster, this puts the card
