GeForce GTX 460 vs GeForce GTX 650

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 675 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a frequency of 900 MHz on this card. It features 336 SPUs as well as 56 Texture Address Units and 24 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 650, which makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1058 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 1250 MHz on this particular card. It features 384 SPUs along with 32 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 650 64 Watts
GeForce GTX 460 150 Watts
Difference: 86 Watts (134%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 460 should perform a little bit faster than the GeForce GTX 650 in general. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 86400 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 650 80000 MB/sec
Difference: 6400 (8%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 460 is a bit (about 12%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 650. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 37800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 650 33856 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 3944 (12%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 650 should be a little bit (about 4%) more effective at FSAA than the GeForce GTX 460, and should be capable of handling higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

GeForce GTX 650 16928 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 16200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 728 (4%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.

I purchased a GEFORCE GT620 on advice from the shop technician. Performance was dismal. An ATI Radeon HD5670 at the same price gives me a bench mark of 7.1 for graphics and gaming graphics. The old faithful GTX which cost a lot more bechmarks in at 7.6 for both tests. The GT620 comes in at 4 for the Graphics and 5.1 for gaming graphics. The GT620 2GB costs $80 and the GT630 4GB $150.
