HIS is readying a slim, single slot, AMD Radeon RX 460 graphics card solution. The HIS RX 460 Slim-iCooler OC 4GB uses a slim HIS iCooler to facilitate its compact form. Despite its reduced size, HIS still manages to create a card that comes modestly factory overclocked, with a 0dB fan profile to boot. The card is bus powered.

The HIS RX 460 Slim-iCooler OC 4GB has a product code of HS-460R4TCNR. Beyond its key attractions mentioned above it looks to have a quality metal fan shroud emblazoned with the HIS lion logo.

Inside the shroud you will find a 0dB profile fan which is just 50mm in diameter, according to TPU. This Slim-iCooler card doesn't spin up the cooling fan until the GPU reaches 60 degrees Celsius, retuning to silent stillness when the GPU cools back down to 50 degrees. Furthermore, while spinning in '2D mode' the fan won't generate more than 28dB, says HIS. Its factory OC at 1220MHz is modest compared to the 1200MHz reference.

HEXUS has only reviewed one RX 460 solution previously, the Sapphire Radeon RX 460 Nitro 4GB with a 6-pin power connector. For comparison the dual-slot, dual-fan Sapphire card came with a factory OC of 1250MHz.

More information regarding the HIS RX 460 Slim-iCooler OC 4GB can be found on the official product page. Pricing and availability are not yet known.

Very nice gadget.
This great but I would like more powerful single slot aio cards.
a 0dB profile fan which is just 50mm in diameter, according to TPU.

They're clearly wrong. The low profile MSI card you featured earlier this week has 50mm fans. the fan on this is clearly bigger - it's more likely to be 70mm judging by the proportion of the (full-height) card it takes up…
Finally a supplier realising that not everyone wants (or has room for) a dual slot GPU in their case. This seems like the most sensible 460 card yet, given its slightly anaemic performance. Single slot, bus powered, 0db when idle… there's a lot to like there.
The most important thing about this cards is that it's a single slot without a VGA port. Thank goodness.

Are you sure?



50mm looks about right to me.
