GeForce GTX 460 (OEM) vs Radeon R7 260X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 (OEM) comes with a GPU clock speed of 650 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 850 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 336 Stream Processors, 56 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 260X, which features clock speeds of 1100 MHz on the GPU, and 1625 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 896 SPUs as well as 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Radeon R7 260X 104000 MB/sec
Difference: 4800 (5%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 260X will be much (about 69%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 460 (OEM). (explain)

Radeon R7 260X 61600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 (OEM) 36400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 25200 (69%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 460 (OEM) is superior to the Radeon R7 260X, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 (OEM) 20800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 260X 17600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3200 (18%)

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 data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
