GeForce GTX 460 SE vs Radeon R9 M385X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 SE comes with a clock frequency of 650 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 850 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It features 288 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 M385X, which features a GPU core clock speed of 1100 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1500 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 896 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the GeForce GTX 460 SE should in theory be a bit superior to the Radeon R9 M385X overall. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M385X should be quite a bit (about 97%) better at 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 lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 460 SE is superior to the Radeon R9 M385X, though only just barely. (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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once 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 anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. 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 rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
