GeForce GTX 460 SE vs Radeon R9 M385X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 SE features a clock frequency of 650 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 850 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 288 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 M385X, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1100 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 1500 MHz on this particular card. It features 896 SPUs as well as 56 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 460 SE should be 13% quicker than the Radeon R9 M385X in general, due to its higher bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 SE 108800 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M385X 96000 MB/sec
Difference: 12800 (13%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M385X is quite a bit (approximately 97%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 460 SE. (explain)

Radeon R9 M385X 61600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 SE 31200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 30400 (97%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 460 SE is a better choice, but it probably won't make a huge difference. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 SE 20800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M385X 17600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3200 (18%)

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 information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better 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 applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. 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 lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
