GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm vs Radeon R7 260X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm comes with a core clock speed of 576 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 999 MHz. It also makes use of a 448-bit bus, and makes use of a 55 nm design. It is made up of 216 SPUs, 72 TAUs, and 28 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 260X, which comes with GPU clock speed of 1100 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1625 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 896 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon R7 260X 115 Watts
GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm 171 Watts
Difference: 56 Watts (49%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm should perform a small bit faster than the Radeon R7 260X in general. (explain)

GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm 111888 MB/sec
Radeon R7 260X 104000 MB/sec
Difference: 7888 (8%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 260X should be quite a bit (about 49%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm. (explain)

Radeon R7 260X 61600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm 41472 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 20128 (49%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R7 260X is superior to the GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm, but it probably won't make a huge difference. (explain)

Radeon R7 260X 17600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm 16128 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1472 (9%)

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 maximum amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, 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 can be applied in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units 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 a second.

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