Running Total War Warhammer in DX12 mode saw the RX 460 render 39fps on average, making it 45% slower than the RX 470. More crucially, it was slightly faster than the GTX 950 though the GeForce graphics card was faster using DX11. When compared to the R7 370 we saw a nice 22% increase in performance.

Vulkan brought the RX 460 to life as we see a 31% increase in performance here over OpenGL. This meant the RX 460 was just 11% slower than the GTX 960 and 47% faster than the GTX 950.
