GeForce GTX 460 vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 features a clock speed of 675 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 900 MHz. It also uses a 192-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It features 336 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 24 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon R9 M370X, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 800 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1125 MHz on this particular model. It features 640 SPUs along with 40 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 460 will be 20% quicker than the Radeon R9 M370X in general, due to its greater data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 86400 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 72000 MB/sec
Difference: 14400 (20%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 460 should be just a bit (more or less 18%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R9 M370X. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 37800 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 5800 (18%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 460 should be a lot (more or less 27%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon R9 M370X, and will be capable of handling higher resolutions more effectively. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 16200 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3400 (27%)

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 information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, 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 are processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

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