How well can the GeForce GTX 460 run games
31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This GeForce GTX 460 graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 460 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 460 in your PC? This GeForce GTX 460 graphics card has reached the end of its ability to run games released today. If you have it in your gaming PC then it’s time to upgrade your graphics solution.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 460? Are you looking to upgrade a GeForce GTX 460? Then we would suggest getting a 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB, as it can run 901 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 341% increased graphics performance. Alternatively a good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 230% better and can meet 694 of their recommended requirements.

GeForce GTX 460 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 460 is a Performance Graphics Card based on the Fermi Architecture.


Architecture
The Fermi Architecture was first manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF104-300-KB-A1 which has 7 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 336 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 675MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 900Hz.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 160W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with two available 6-pin connectors.


Performance
GeForce GTX 460 competes with Radeon HD 5830 and proves to be around 15% faster.


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

It says here the gtx 460 supports directX 12, which should be very wrong. Kindly apply minor text fix here. Thanks.

while yes technically this card only supports up to 11.3 it (supposedly) will play DX12 games with the feature set of 11.3. So it is compatible with DX12 games, but does not actually support DX12. GD is technically correct, because it states compatibility not actual support
