GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB vs Radeon R7 260X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB comes with a GPU core speed of 928 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 1350 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 768 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon R7 260X, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1100 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1625 MHz on this particular model. It features 896 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the Radeon R7 260X should in theory be a small bit better than the GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB in general. (explain)

Radeon R7 260X 104000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB 86400 MB/sec
Difference: 17600 (20%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 260X should be a little bit (approximately 4%) better at AF than the GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB. (explain)

Radeon R7 260X 61600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB 59392 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 2208 (4%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R7 260X is the winner, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

Radeon R7 260X 17600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB 14848 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2752 (19%)

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 max amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
