In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition.

The GTX 650 Ti has a 253 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 460. This results in the GTX 650 Ti providing 21.6 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 650 Ti has a 253 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 460, but the GeForce GTX 460 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 650 Ti. As a result, the GeForce GTX 460 exhibits a 6.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 650 Ti. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 650 Ti was released over a year more recently than the GeForce GTX 460, and so the GTX 650 Ti is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce GTX 460.

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 460 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce GTX 460 has 28.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 650 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 460 is slightly better than the GTX 650 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 460 has 336. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 Ti is 713 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 460 is 454. The GTX 650 Ti having 259 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce GTX 460 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 650 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTX 460. This means that the GTX 650 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTX 460. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GTX 650 Ti should consume less power than the GeForce GTX 460.

The GeForce GTX 460 requires 160 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GTX 650 Ti. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GeForce GTX 460, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the GTX 650 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class.
This edition has no new features and so it performs exactly like the reference GeForce GTX 650 Ti.
Overview
GeForce GTX 460 is a Performance Graphics Card based on the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture was first manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF104-300-KB-A1 which has 7 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 336 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 675MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 900Hz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 160W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with two available 6-pin connectors.

Performance
GeForce GTX 460 competes with Radeon HD 5830 and proves to be around 15% faster.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 460 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
