In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FirePro D300 are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition.

The GTX 460 has a 80 MHz higher core clock speed than the FirePro D300, but the FirePro D300 has 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 460. As a result, the FirePro D300 exhibits a 14.1 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 460. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 460 has a 80 MHz higher core clock speed than the FirePro D300 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 460 providing 2.6 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 D300 was released over three years more recently than the GTX 460, and so the FirePro D300 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 D300 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 FirePro D300 also has superior memory performance overall.

The FirePro D300 has 31.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 460, which means that the memory performance of the FirePro D300 is noticeably better than the GTX 460.

The GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition has 336 Shader Processing Units and the FirePro D300 has 1280. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 575 and the actual shader performance of the FirePro D300 is 645. The FirePro D300 having 70 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the FirePro D300 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 460.

The FirePro D300 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 460. This means that the FirePro D300 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 460. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the FirePro D300 should consume less power than the GTX 460.

The GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition requires 160 Watts to run and the FirePro D300 requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 460 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the FirePro D300. The GTX 460 requires 10 Watts more than the FirePro D300 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 460 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the FirePro D300.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate a 17% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 460.
FirePro D300 is a workstation Graphics Card based on the 28nm GCN architecture.
It's based on the Pitcairn XT Core (same used on 7870) and therefore offers 1280 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs on a 256-bit interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit is clocked 775MHz while the memory clock operates at 1250MHZ.
It is thus considerably lower clocked and its gaming performance is even lower, as Radeon HD 7870 benefits from certified gaming drivers which unlock the GCN's architecture potential while FirePro D300 is made for professional applications. Therefore, expect its performance to be similar to Radeon HD 7850.
