In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 360 v2 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition.

The R7 360 has a 345 MHz higher core clock speed but 8 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 460. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the R7 360 manages to provide 9.7 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 R7 360 has a 345 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 460, but the GTX 460 has 16 more Render Output Units than the R7 360. As a result, the GTX 460 exhibits a 8.2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the R7 360. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The R7 360 was released over three years more recently than the GTX 460, and so the R7 360 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 R7 360 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 460, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GTX 460 has 24.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R7 360, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 460 is slightly better than the R7 360.

The GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition has 336 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R7 360 v2 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 575 and the actual shader performance of the R7 360 is 783. The R7 360 having 208 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX 460 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The R7 360 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 460. This means that the R7 360 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 460. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the R7 360 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 Radeon R7 360 v2 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition 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 R7 360. The GTX 460 requires 10 Watts more than the R7 360 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 R7 360.
