NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 460M sales 3 September 2010. This is Fermi architecture notebook card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1536 MB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1.25 GHz are supplied, and together with 192 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 60.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Power consumption is at 50 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 4.37 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.
