We start with the results coming out from Futuremark's benchmarks. These include the results of the 3DMark 05, 3DMark 06 and the 3DMark Vantage software tests.
Starting with the 3D Mark 05 benchmark, the Inno3D GT 460 1GB OC got just 16718 points, which is very close to the GTX 470's score:
At the 3DMark 06 benchmark the Inno3D GTX 460 1GB OC scored an impressive 13842 score, which is very close to the score of a GTX 580 OC! Of course, this does not mean that the cards are comparable in terms of gaming performance.
The Inno3D GTX 460 1GB OC is also positioned ahead the GTX 465, the GTX 470 and the HD 5770:
The 3DMark Vantage tests the performance of each card in different resolutions. We charted the GTX 460 1GB OC, the GTX 460 768MB, the GTX 470 and the HD5770 graphics cards. The GTX 460 OC performed great and clearly beats the GTX 470 and GTX 460 768MB. The card's score is excellent for the mid-range segment:
