In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX Vega 9 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 PNY 1GB OC Edition.

The RX Vega has a 335 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 460. This results in the RX Vega providing 45.2 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 RX Vega has a 335 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 460 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the RX Vega providing 10.7 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 RX Vega was released over three years more recently than the GTX 460, and so the RX Vega is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 460 when running the latest games.

The GTX 460 has 1024 MB video memory, but the RX Vega does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon RX Vega 9 has 576 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 460 PNY 1GB OC Edition has 336. However, the actual shader performance of the RX Vega is 487 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 514. The GTX 460 having 27 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 460 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX Vega.

The RX Vega transistor size technology is 26 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 460. This means that the RX Vega is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 460.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 460, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the RX Vega.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview Radeon RX Vega 9 is a dedicated Graphics processor found in AMD's Desktop and Mobile Ryzen processors. GPU It equips a GPU Codenamed Vega M which offers 9 Compute Units and 575 Shaders. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 1100MHz and goes up to 1300MHz in Turbo Mode. System Suggestions We recommend 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon RX Vega 9.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.
