In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 PNY 1GB OC Edition.

The GeForce GTX 770 has a 281 MHz higher core clock speed and 72 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 460. This results in the GeForce GTX 770 providing 91.1 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 GeForce GTX 770 has a 281 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 460 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce GTX 770 providing 9 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 GeForce GTX 770 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 460, and so the GeForce GTX 770 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 770 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 GeForce GTX 770 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GTX 770 has 105.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 460, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 770 is massively better than the GTX 460.

The GeForce GTX 460 PNY 1GB OC Edition has 336 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 770 has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 514 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 770 is 1667. The GeForce GTX 770 having 1153 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 770 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 460.

The GeForce GTX 770 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 460. This means that the GeForce GTX 770 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 460.

The GeForce GTX 770 requires 230 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GTX 460. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 460 and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 770. The GeForce GTX 770 has been recommended a PSU with 100 Watts more than the GTX 460. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 770 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 460.
