In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 370 Sapphire Nitro 2GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition.

The R7 370 has a 130 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 460. This results in the R7 370 providing 15.1 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 370 has a 130 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 460 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the R7 370 providing 4.1 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 R7 370 was released over three years more recently than the GTX 460, and so the R7 370 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 370 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 460, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the R7 370 also has superior memory performance overall.

The R7 370 has 50.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 460, which means that the memory performance of the R7 370 is much better than the GTX 460.

The Radeon R7 370 Sapphire Nitro 2GB Edition has 1024 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition has 336. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 370 is 901 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 575. The R7 370 having 326 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R7 370 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 460.

The R7 370 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 460. This means that the R7 370 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 460.

The Radeon R7 370 Sapphire Nitro 2GB Edition requires 150 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition requires 160 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R7 370 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 460. The GTX 460 requires 10 Watts more than the R7 370 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 370.
