Test 2: The Division
The Division, a third-person shooter/RPG that mixes elements of Destiny and Gears of War, kicks things off with Ubisoft’s new Snowdrop engine.
Now that we’re done with e-sports, you’ll find that most of these traditional games require dropping the graphics settings down to medium to hit decent frame rates. But that’s okay! We’re just trying to see how far you can push this card if you decide to expand beyond e-sports.
The overclocked, power-bolstered 4GB RX 460 falls a bit behind the more potent GTX 950 in The Division, but delivers a massive 20 percent more performance at Medium settings than the GTX 750 Ti, which draws its performance solely through a PCIe slot on your motherboard. Then again, you’d expect to see that—the GTX 750 Ti is over two years old.

XFX Radeon RX 460 (4GB)
While we heartily recommend the Radeon RX 460 in general, XFX's customized 4GB version isn't compelling at this price point.
