NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 v2: specs and benchmarks
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.

Synthetic benchmark performance of GeForce GTX 460 v2. The combined score is measured on a 0-100 point scale.
Combined synthetic benchmark score
This is our combined benchmark performance score. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
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.
Benchmark coverage: 25%
GeekBench 5 OpenCL
Geekbench 5 is a widespread graphics card benchmark combined from 11 different test scenarios. All these scenarios rely on direct usage of GPU's processing power, no 3D rendering is involved. This variation uses OpenCL API by Khronos Group.
Benchmark coverage: 9%
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.
