GeForce GTX 460 1GB vs Radeon R9 M385X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 1GB comes with a core clock frequency of 675 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 900 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It is made up of 336 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 M385X, which has core speeds of 1100 MHz on the GPU, and 1500 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 896 SPUs as well as 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 460 1GB is 20% faster than the Radeon R9 M385X overall, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 1GB 115200 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M385X 96000 MB/sec
Difference: 19200 (20%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M385X is much (more or less 63%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 460 1GB. (explain)

Radeon R9 M385X 61600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 1GB 37800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 23800 (63%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 460 1GB is the winner, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 1GB 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 largest amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write 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 core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as 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, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
