In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FirePro S9150 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 768MB.

The FirePro S9150 has a 225 MHz higher core clock speed and 120 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 460. This results in the FirePro S9150 providing 120.6 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 FirePro S9150 has a 225 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the GTX 460. This results in the FirePro S9150 providing 36 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 FirePro S9150 was released over three years more recently than the GTX 460, and so the FirePro S9150 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 FirePro S9150 has 15616 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 FirePro S9150 also has superior memory performance overall.

The FirePro S9150 has 233.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 460, which means that the memory performance of the FirePro S9150 is massively better than the GTX 460.

The FirePro S9150 has 2816 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 460 768MB has 336. However, the actual shader performance of the FirePro S9150 is 2534 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 454. The FirePro S9150 having 2080 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the FirePro S9150 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 460.

The FirePro S9150 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 460. This means that the FirePro S9150 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 460.

The FirePro S9150 requires 235 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 460 768MB requires 150 Watts. 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 FirePro S9150. The FirePro S9150 requires 85 Watts more than the GTX 460 to run. The difference is significant enough that the FirePro S9150 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 460.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewFirePro S9150 is a server GPU based on the 28nm GCN architecture.

It's based on the Hawaii XT Core (same used on Radeon R9 290X) and therefore offers 2816 Shader Processing Units, 176 TMUs and 64 ROPs on a 512-bit interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit is clocked 900MHz while the memory clock operates at 1250MHZ.

Compared to Radeon R9 290X, its central unit is slightly lower and overall its gaming performance is lower than Radeon R9 290X because the latter benefits from certified gaming drivers which unlock the GCN's architecture potential while FirePro S9150 is made for professional applications. Therefore, expect its performance to be between 10% and 15% worse than Radeon R9 290X.
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.
