In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition are marginally better than the AMD Radeon HD 5850 XFX Black 1GB Edition.

The GTX 460 has a 90 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 5850, but the HD 5850 has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 460. As a result, the HD 5850 exhibits a 7.2 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 90 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 5850 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 460 providing 2.9 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 less than a year after the HD 5850, 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 Radeon HD 5850 XFX Black 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 HD 5850 has 15.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 460, which means that the memory performance of the HD 5850 is slightly better than the GTX 460.

The GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition has 336 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 5850 XFX Black 1GB Edition has 1440. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 575 and the actual shader performance of the HD 5850 is 551. The GTX 460 having 24 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the HD 5850 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition requires 160 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 5850 XFX Black 1GB Edition requires 151 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 HD 5850. The GTX 460 requires 9 Watts more than the HD 5850 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 HD 5850.
