Like the table shows that dangtx posted there will likely not be a large difference in performance between the 2 cards.

If you've got a 4890 and are debating whether to upgrade to a 460, I wouldn't say it's worth it unless you can sell the 4890 for almost as much as you'd pay for the 460. If you don't have one and you're debating which card to get, then I would suggest the 460.

+1 to zero.

the 460 should be superior to the 4890. it's a gen newer too.
