GeForce GTX 460 2GB vs Radeon R9 M385X

Intro

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

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 M385X, which has core speeds of 1100 MHz on the GPU, and 1500 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 896 SPUs along with 56 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the GeForce GTX 460 2GB should perform just a bit faster than the Radeon R9 M385X overall. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 2GB 115200 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M385X 96000 MB/sec
Difference: 19200 (20%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M385X is quite a bit (about 63%) better at AF than the GeForce GTX 460 2GB. (explain)

Radeon R9 M385X 61600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 2GB 37800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 23800 (63%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 460 2GB is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 2GB 21600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M385X 17600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4000 (23%)

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 max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock 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 one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
