GeForce GTX 460 SE vs GeForce GTX 880M

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 SE makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 650 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a frequency of 850 MHz on this model. It features 288 SPUs as well as 48 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Compare all that to the GeForce GTX 880M, which features clock speeds of 954 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1536 SPUs along with 128 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

GeForce GTX 460 SE 108800 MB/sec
Difference: 19200 (18%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 880M is a lot (about 291%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GTX 460 SE. (explain)

GeForce GTX 880M 122112 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 SE 31200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 90912 (291%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 880M is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 880M 30528 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 SE 20800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 9728 (47%)

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 max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, 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 are applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total 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 one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out 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 fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
