GeForce GTX 460 SE vs GeForce GTX 880M

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 SE comes with a core clock frequency of 650 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 850 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 288 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 880M, which has a GPU core clock speed of 954 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1000 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 1536 Stream Processors, 128 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. 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 in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount 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 handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
