GeForce GTX 570 vs Radeon RX 460 2GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 570 uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 732 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 950 MHz on this particular card. It features 480 SPUs along with 60 Texture Address Units and 40 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 460 2GB, which uses a 14 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1090 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1750 MHz on this specific model. It features 896 SPUs as well as 56 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes 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 - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
