NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 v2: specs and benchmarks

VS

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 460 v2 sales 24 September 2011 at a recommended price of $199 . This is a Fermi 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4.01 GHz are supplied, and together with 192 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 96.19 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 210 mm. Two 6-pin power connectors are required, and power consumption is at 160 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 4.95% of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.

Passmark

This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.

Octane Render OctaneBench

This is a special benchmark measuring graphics card performance in OctaneRender, which is a realistic GPU rendering engine by OTOY Inc., available either as a standalone program, or as a plugin for 3DS Max, Cinema 4D and many other apps. It renders four different static scenes, then compares render times with a reference GPU which is currently GeForce GTX 980. This benchmark has nothing to do with gaming and is aimed at professional 3D graphics artists.
