In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 5770 Crossfire are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 MSI Hawk v1 1GB Edition.

The HD 5770 has a 70 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 460. This results in the HD 5770 providing 24.3 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 HD 5770 has a 70 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 460 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the HD 5770 providing 2.2 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 HD 5770, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The HD 5770 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 HD 5770 also has superior memory performance overall.

The HD 5770 has 38.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 460, which means that the memory performance of the HD 5770 is noticeably better than the GTX 460.

The Radeon HD 5770 Crossfire has 1600 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 460 MSI Hawk v1 1GB Edition has 336. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 5770 is 884 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 524. The HD 5770 having 360 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 5770 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 460.

The HD 5770 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 460. This means that the HD 5770 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 460.

The Radeon HD 5770 Crossfire requires 206 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 460 MSI Hawk v1 1GB Edition requires 160 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the HD 5770 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 460. The HD 5770 requires 46 Watts more than the GTX 460 to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD 5770 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 460.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 5770 Crossfire is a solution of two Radeon HD 5770 put together using AMD'S Crossfire technology.
Check the page of Radeon HD 5770 to know more about its chip.
Crossfire relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is up around 79% better a single Radeon HD 5770 performing by itself but at times (depending whether or not the 3D game supports crossfire or in the graphics driver) it might perform worse than a single Radeon HD 5770. Expect this combination to draw up to 216 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
