NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 SE: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 SE

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 460 SE sales 15 November 2010 at a recommended price of $160. This is Fermi architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 1 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1.7 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 108.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 8.25" (210 mm) (21 cm). 6-pin & 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 150 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 7.29 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.
