In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 PNY 1GB OC Edition are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 SE.

The GTX 460 has a 115 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 460. This results in the GTX 460 providing 6.4 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 460 has a 115 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 460 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 460 providing 3.7 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 460 was released less than a year after the GTX 460, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 460 PNY 1GB OC Edition and the GeForce GTX 460 SE have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 460 has 9.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 460, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 460 is marginally better than the GTX 460.

The GeForce GTX 460 PNY 1GB OC Edition has 336 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 460 SE has 288. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 514 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 374. The GTX 460 having 140 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 460 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 460.

The GeForce GTX 460 SE 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 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 460. The two GPUs have been recommended a PSU with the same amount of wattage. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

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.
GeForce GTX 460 SE is technically a cheaper version of the GTX 460, optimized for lower power consumption.
It's based on the Fermi GF104 Core and offers 288 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs on a 256-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5.
Its performance is up to 15% worse than GeForce GTX 460 but well above GeForce GTS 450.
Note: GeForce GTX 460 SE was later (Sep 2011) released as GeForce GTX 460 SE v2 which featured a more efficient Fermi GF114 Core and later (2011 - 500 Series) was overclocked and released as GeForce GTX 555/GeForce GTX 560 SE and (later - 2012) renamed to GeForce GT 645.
