GeForce GTX 570 vs Radeon RX 460 2GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 570 makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 732 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 950 MHz on this specific model. It features 480 SPUs as well as 60 TAUs and 40 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 460 2GB, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1090 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1750 MHz on this card. It features 896 SPUs as well as 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

In theory, the GeForce GTX 570 will be 36% faster than the Radeon RX 460 2GB in general, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 570 152000 MB/sec
Radeon RX 460 2GB 112000 MB/sec
Difference: 40000 (36%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 460 2GB should be a lot (approximately 39%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 570. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 2GB 61040 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 570 43920 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 17120 (39%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 570 is superior to the Radeon RX 460 2GB, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 570 29280 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 460 2GB 17440 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 11840 (68%)

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 (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core 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 a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
