In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 768MB.

The GTX 670 has a 305 MHz higher core clock speed and 56 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 460. This results in the GTX 670 providing 72 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 670 has a 305 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 460 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 670 providing 9.8 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 GTX 670 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 460, and so the GTX 670 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 GTX 670 has 1280 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 GTX 670 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 670 has 105.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 460, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 670 is massively better than the GTX 460.

The GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition has 1344 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 460 768MB has 336. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 670 is 1422 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 454. The GTX 670 having 968 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 670 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 460.

The GTX 670 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 460. This means that the GTX 670 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 460.

The GeForce GTX 460 768MB requires 150 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GTX 670. 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 GTX 670.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition is a Special Edition of the powerful GeForce GTX 670. See the standard version for more information about it.
The new features include an increase in the core-clock that went from 915MHz to 980MHz while the Turbo Boost is now of 1058MHz. A 20% more effective cooler is also included.
The performance boost is significant and around 5% when compared to the standard GTX 670.
Most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
GeForce GTX 460 768MB is a high-end GPU based on the 40nm Fermi architecture.
It's based on the Fermi GF104 Core and offers 336 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 32 ROPs, on 192-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 675MHz and the memory clock operates at 900MHz.
Compared to the reference GeForce GTX 460, it offers less memory bandwidth and a smaller frame buffer. Benchmarks indicate that its performance might be up to 8% worse than the standard version.
Most modern demanding games will run at the highest settings using a 1080p resolution. However, some will require reduced settings to be played optimally.
