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 GT 740 v3 MSI 2GB Edition.

The GT 740 has a 151 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 460, but the GTX 460 has 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 740. As a result, the GTX 460 exhibits a 15.7 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GT 740. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GT 740 has a 151 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 460, but the GTX 460 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GT 740. As a result, the GTX 460 exhibits a 11.3 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GT 740. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GT 740 was released over three years more recently than the GTX 460, and so the GT 740 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 GT 740 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 48.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 740, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 460 is noticeably better than the GT 740.

The GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition has 336 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 740 v3 MSI 2GB Edition has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 575 and the actual shader performance of the GT 740 is 386. The GTX 460 having 189 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 460 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 740.

The GT 740 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 460. This means that the GT 740 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 460.

The GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition requires 160 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 740 v3 MSI 2GB Edition requires 64 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 GT 740. The GTX 460 requires 96 Watts more than the GT 740 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 GT 740.

GeForce GT 740 v3 MSI 2GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Middle-Class GeForce GT 740 v3, created by MSI.

Overclock: Central Unit
None.

Overclock: Memory Clock
None.

Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was doubled to 2GB. This would prove useful under most circumstances because most modern 3D Games require at least 2GB of Memory to run Optimally.
However, because the GPU itself is too weak to work under other circumstances in which 2GB of Memory are needed - such as 1080p Gaming, a Larger Frame Buffer is mostly a Gimmick.
