NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 SE: specs and benchmarks



NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 460 SE sales 15 November 2010 at a recommended price of $160 . This is a desktop graphics card based on a Fermi architecture and made with 40 nm manufacturing process. It is primarily aimed at gamer market. 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 5.18% of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.
