GeForce GTX 460 (OEM) vs GeForce GTX 950

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 (OEM) features a GPU core 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 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the GeForce GTX 950, which makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1024 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a frequency of 1652 MHz on this specific card. It features 768 SPUs as well as 48 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

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