How well can the GeForce GTX 460 run games
4 Jul 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

This GeForce GTX 460 graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 460 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 460 in your PC? This GeForce GTX 460 graphics card has reached the end of its ability to run games released today. If you have it in your gaming PC then it’s time to upgrade your graphics solution.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 460? A good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 460 would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB which meets 852 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 341% better performance. Alternatively a good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 XT 4GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 260% better and can meet 797 of their recommended requirements.

GeForce GTX 460 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 460 is a Performance Graphics Card based on the Fermi Architecture.


Architecture
The Fermi Architecture was first manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF104-300-KB-A1 which has 7 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 336 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 675MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 900Hz.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 160W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with two available 6-pin connectors.


Performance
GeForce GTX 460 competes with Radeon HD 5830 and proves to be around 15% faster.


System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 460 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
