In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 PNY 1GB OC Edition.

The GTX 650 Ti has a 215 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 460. This results in the GTX 650 Ti providing 19.9 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 215 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 460, but the GTX 460 has 8 more Render Output Units than the GTX 650 Ti. As a result, the GTX 460 exhibits a 1 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 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 GTX 460.

The GTX 650 Ti has 1024 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 GTX 650 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 650 Ti has 25.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 460, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 650 Ti is slightly better than the GTX 460.

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 460 PNY 1GB OC Edition has 336. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 Ti is 793 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 514. The GTX 650 Ti having 279 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 650 Ti delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 460.

The GTX 650 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 460. This means that the GTX 650 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 460.

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition requires 134 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 460 PNY 1GB OC Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 650 Ti 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 650 Ti Boost Edition is a fast-middle-class GFX, based on the 28nm - Kepler architecture.
It's a modified GeForce GTX 650 Ti that features an increased core-clock whichis of 980MHz (against the 928MHz of the first revision) and has the Boost Clock activated and thus achieving around 1033MHz, in Turbo Mode.
Also, the bus width was increased to 192-bit (from 128-bit) and the operating memory clock to 1502MHz (from 1350MHz). The power consumption is over 50% more.
Compared to the first revision, it supports SLI and benchmarks indicate a performance boost of over 25%, putting its performance even above AMD's Radeon HD 7850.
GeForce 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.
