GeForce GTX 460 2GB vs Radeon R9 M380

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 2GB has a core clock frequency of 675 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 900 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 336 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 M380, which comes with GPU core speed of 1000 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1500 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 460 2GB is 20% faster than the Radeon R9 M380 in general, due to its greater data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 2GB 115200 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M380 96000 MB/sec
Difference: 19200 (20%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M380 is just a bit (about 6%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 460 2GB. (explain)

Radeon R9 M380 40000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 2GB 37800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 2200 (6%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 460 2GB is superior to the Radeon R9 M380, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 2GB 21600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M380 16000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5600 (35%)

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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at 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 graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
