In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 460 4GB are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 Asus OC 2GB Edition.

The GTX 950 has a 12 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 460, but the RX 460 has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 950. As a result, the RX 460 exhibits a 8.1 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 950. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 950 has a 12 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the RX 460. This results in the GTX 950 providing 17.9 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 RX 460 was released less than a year after the GTX 950, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The RX 460 has 2048 MB more video memory than the GTX 950, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GTX 950 has superior memory performance.

The GTX 950 has 105.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 460, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 950 is massively better than the RX 460.

The Radeon RX 460 4GB has 896 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 950 Asus OC 2GB Edition has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 460 is 1075 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 950 is 1326. The GTX 950 having 251 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 950 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 460.

The RX 460 transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 950. This means that the RX 460 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 950.

The Radeon RX 460 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 950 Asus OC 2GB Edition requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the RX 460 and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GTX 950. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon RX 460 4GB is an Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the 4th Generation of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Baffin XT which has 14 Compute Units activated and thus 896 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 16 ROPs.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it requires at least a 350W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power, meaning no Extra Connectors are required.

Performance
This graphics card was designed and marketed towards the competitive MOBO gamers. A light weight, small form factor GPU solution that offers mobility, so that gamers travelling to events can bring a smaller cheaper gaming rig. The Radeon RX 460 4GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 1600p screen res and expect around 45+FPS

System Suggestions
Radeon RX 460 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
