This Strix AMD 460 will achieve up to 30% extra cooling performance when gaming thanks to the exclusive DirectCU III cooling technology. This tech featured on the Radeon RX 460 utilizes direct-GPU contact heat-pipes that will transport more heat away from the GPU and out-perform the reference designs.
*Image for illustration only, actual design may vary.
DirectCU III features triple 0dB fans engineered with a patented wing-blade design that delivers maximum air flow and improved 105% static pressure over the heat sink of the Strix RX 460 - while operating at 3X quieter volumes than reference cards. The 0dB fans also let you enjoy games in complete silence and make DirectCU III the coolest and quietest graphics card in the market.
This 460 series, like various other ASUS boards, has had premium alloy components intergrated into their graphics card designs reinforcing the overall reliability. Super Alloy Power II components greatly enhance the Strix 460 efficiency, reduce power loss and achieve thermal levels that are approximately 50% cooler than previous designs.
When gaming it is commonly found that GPU temperatures are higher than that of the CPU, due to chassis fans usually referencing CPU temps only - resulting in inefficient cooling. The Strix 460 graphics card features two 4-pin GPU controlled headers that can be connected to system fans for targeted cooling on your ASUS Radeon RX 460.

2016 is proving to be a bumper year for new graphics card launches. Both AMD and Nvidia have refreshed their portfolios with a range of cards based on cutting-edge architectures, and there's plenty of differentiation between the two, as while Nvidia has focussed primarily on the high-end, AMD has plied the mainstream end of the market with the Radeon RX 480, Radeon RX 470 and, as of today, the Radeon RX 460.
