In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FirePro S7000 are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 PNY 1GB OC Edition.

The FirePro S7000 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 460, and so the FirePro S7000 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 460.

The FirePro S7000 has 3072 MB more video memory than the GTX 460, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the FirePro S7000 also has superior memory performance overall.

The FirePro S7000 has 35.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 460, which means that the memory performance of the FirePro S7000 is noticeably better than the GTX 460.

The GeForce GTX 460 PNY 1GB OC Edition has 336 Shader Processing Units and the FirePro S7000 has 1280. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 514 and the actual shader performance of the FirePro S7000 is 790. The FirePro S7000 having 276 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX 460 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The FirePro S7000 requires 150 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GTX 460. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 460.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 460 PNY 1GB OC Edition is a special edition of the high-end GeForce GTX 460.
The biggest features are increases in the core-clock that went from 675MHz to 765MHz and from 900MHz to 925MHz, respectively.
According to most benchmarks, the performance boost is around 8% when compared to the standard GeForce GTX 460.
FirePro S7000 is a server GPU based on the 28nm GCN architecture.
It's based on the Pitcairn XT Core (same used on 7870) and therefore offers 1280 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs on a 256-bit interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit is clocked 950MHz while the memory clock operates at 1200MHZ.
Compared to Radeon HD 7870, its central unit is slightly lower clocked and its gaming performance is even lower as Radeon HD 7870 benefits from certified gaming drivers which unlock the GCN's architecture potential while FirePro S7000 is made for professional applications. Therefore, expect its performance to be between 10% and 15% worse than Radeon HD 7870.
