    Finally plan on getting the new Pro tomorrow.

    Question for owners,
    is there a major noticeable difference between the 455 and 460? I've heard conflicting results o_O. I'll be using their Pro suite + some gaming.

    Feedback appreciated.

    The benchmarks used to show about a 10% increase in speed over the 455. There's some doubt about whether that difference is preserved now with the latest OS update, but I haven't seen any definite comparisons since then.

    The extra vram is a big bonus for gaming and pro editing, also it's a fair increase in TfLops for shaders etc.

    There is a substantial difference, yes, but what limits the 460 Pro is the memory bandwidth. There will be scenarios where you won't see any difference between 455 and 460 simply because the memory speed is the same. In more demanding applications though the 460 will pull ahead.
