GeForce GTX 460 vs GeForce GTX 650

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 features a GPU core speed of 675 MHz, and the 768 MB of GDDR5 RAM is set to run at 900 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is comprised of 336 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 24 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 650, which uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1058 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1250 MHz on this specific card. It features 384 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

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

The GeForce GTX 460 should theoretically perform a small 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 just a bit (more or less 12%) better at AF than the GeForce GTX 650. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 650 is superior to the GeForce GTX 460, though not by far. (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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines 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 many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max 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.
