GeForce GTX 460 2GB vs Radeon R9 M385X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 2GB has a GPU clock speed of 675 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 900 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 336 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 M385X, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1100 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1500 MHz on this particular card. It features 896 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: 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 bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 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, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better 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 a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
