In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB SLI.

The GTX 460 has a 205 MHz higher core clock speed than the 8800 GTS, but the 8800 GTS has 72 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 460. As a result, the 8800 GTS exhibits a 35.3 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 205 MHz higher core clock speed than the 8800 GTS and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 460 providing 6.6 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 GTX 460 was released over a year more recently than the 8800 GTS, and so the GTX 460 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the 8800 GTS.

The GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition and the GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB SLI have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 460 has 26.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 8800 GTS, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 460 is slightly better than the 8800 GTS.

The GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition has 336 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB SLI has 256. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 575 and the actual shader performance of the 8800 GTS is 166. The GTX 460 having 409 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 460 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the 8800 GTS.

The GTX 460 transistor size technology is 25 nm (nanometers) smaller than the 8800 GTS. This means that the GTX 460 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the 8800 GTS.

The GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition requires 160 Watts to run and the GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB SLI requires 270 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 460 and a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the 8800 GTS. The 8800 GTS requires 110 Watts more than the GTX 460 to run. The difference is significant enough that the 8800 GTS may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 460.
