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 GTS 450 Asus DirectCU TOP 1GB Edition.

The GTS 450 has a 70 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 460, but the GTX 460 has 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTS 450. As a result, the GTX 460 exhibits a 18.3 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTS 450. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTS 450 has a 70 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 460, but the GTX 460 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTS 450. As a result, the GTX 460 exhibits a 12.6 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTS 450. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTS 450 was released less than a year after the GTX 460, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTS 450 Asus DirectCU TOP 1GB Edition 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 64.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTS 450, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 460 is much better than the GTS 450.

The GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition has 336 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTS 450 Asus DirectCU TOP 1GB Edition has 192. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 575 and the actual shader performance of the GTS 450 is 355. The GTX 460 having 220 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 460 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTS 450.

The GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition requires 160 Watts to run and the GeForce GTS 450 Asus DirectCU TOP 1GB Edition requires 106 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 460 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTS 450. The GTX 460 requires 54 Watts more than the GTS 450 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 460 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTS 450.
