GeForce GTX 465 vs Radeon R7 260X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 465 uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 607 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 802 MHz on this card. It features 352 SPUs as well as 44 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 260X, which has GPU clock speed of 1100 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1625 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 896 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, it must 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, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
