In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 MSI OC v2 1GB Edition are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB.

The GTX 650 Ti has a 268 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 460. This results in the GTX 650 Ti providing 23 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 268 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 460, but the GTX 460 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 650 Ti. As a result, the GTX 460 exhibits a 7.3 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 GeForce GTX 460 MSI OC v2 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB 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 28.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 650 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 460 is slightly better than the GTX 650 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 460 MSI OC v2 1GB Edition has 336 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 487 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 Ti is 763. The GTX 650 Ti having 276 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the 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 GTX 460. This means that the GTX 650 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 460. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GTX 650 Ti should consume less power than the GTX 460.

The GeForce GTX 460 MSI OC v2 1GB Edition requires 160 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 460.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate a 6% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 460.
GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 650 Ti.
This edition features a new and better cooling system called Cyclone II Thermal Design with Dust Removal technology and an increase in the central clock that went from 928MHz to 993MHz. The Memory clock was left untouched.
The overclocking is relevant and benchmarks indicate there's a 4% boost when compared to the reference GeForce GTX 650 Ti.
