GTX 460 (768MB) vs HD 5830 Performance Shootout
3DMark 11 is the latest version of the world’s most popular benchmark. Designed to measure your PC’s gaming performance 3DMark 11 makes extensive use of all the new features in DirectX 11 including tessellation, compute shaders and multi-threading. Trusted by gamers worldwide to give accurate and unbiased results, 3DMark 11 is the best way to consistently and reliably test DirectX 11 under game-like loads.
In the newer test, we see the tables turning against the GTX 460. The HD 5830 took over the reigns here and won both stock and overclocked runs in this DX11 based test.
In any case, synthetic benchmarks only give an idea of overall performance but they don’t usually tell the whole story. To do that we need to run some real-world game benches.
