In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 5300 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 SLI.

The Radeon RX 5300 has a 325 MHz higher core clock speed but 24 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 460. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the Radeon RX 5300 manages to provide 12.4 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 Radeon RX 5300 has a 325 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 460, but the GTX 460 has 32 more Render Output Units than the Radeon RX 5300. As a result, the GTX 460 exhibits a 11.2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the Radeon RX 5300. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Radeon RX 5300 was released over three years more recently than the GTX 460, and so the Radeon RX 5300 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.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The Radeon RX 5300 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 Radeon RX 5300 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 460 has 62.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon RX 5300, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 460 is much better than the Radeon RX 5300.

The Radeon RX 5300 has 1536 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 460 SLI has 672. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon RX 5300 is 1897 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 907. The Radeon RX 5300 having 990 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon RX 5300 delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 460.

The Radeon RX 5300 transistor size technology is 33 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 460. This means that the Radeon RX 5300 is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 460.

The Radeon RX 5300 requires 85 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 460 SLI requires 380 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Radeon RX 5300 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 460. The GTX 460 requires 295 Watts more than the Radeon RX 5300 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 460 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon RX 5300.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The Radeon RX 5300 is an entry-level desktop graphics card which is part of the AMD Radeon RX 5000 series.

Architecture
It is powered by the 7nm Navi GPU, which has 1536 shader processing units, 88 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at 1000MHz and goes up to 1900MHz when the boost mode is triggered.

Memory
The RX 5300 comes with a 3GB frame buffer of GDDR6 through a 96-bit memory interface, while the memory clock operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 85W, it requires at least a 450W PSU.

Performance
The Radeon RX 5300 has been built as a Low/Mid performance graphics card for 2020. Its direct competitor is the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070. It will run most triple AAA titles released during 2020 on medium to high graphics at 1080p screen resolution. With adjustments and lowering anti aliasing this Radeon RX 5300 card can confidently maintain 60+ frames per seconds on high graphic settings at 1080p. Moving to 1440p screen resolution and the graphics card may need to be adjusted down to medium in order to maintain 50-60+ fps.

System Suggestions
The Radeon RX 5300 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a mid range Ryzen 5 processor and at least 8GB of system memory for optimal gaming performance from the RX 5300.
GeForce GTX 460 SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 460 put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may cause micro stuttering in FPS below 30. This means this combination might even perform worse than a single GTX 460.
The optimal performance it delivers is slightly better than a single GeForce GTX 480.
Therefore, this combination is sufficient for gaming at 1080p and most demanding games can be played at the highest settings.
