GeForce GTX 460 SE vs Radeon R9 M380

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 SE has core speeds of 650 MHz on the GPU, and 850 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 288 SPUs as well as 48 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 M380, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1000 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 1500 MHz on this model. It features 640 SPUs along with 40 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the GeForce GTX 460 SE should theoretically be a little bit superior to the Radeon R9 M380 in general. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 SE 108800 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M380 96000 MB/sec
Difference: 12800 (13%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M380 will be much (approximately 28%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 460 SE. (explain)

Radeon R9 M380 40000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 SE 31200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 8800 (28%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 460 SE is the winner, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 SE 20800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M380 16000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4800 (30%)

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 information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better 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 applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
