GeForce GTX 460 (OEM) vs Radeon RX 460 2GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 (OEM) comes with a GPU clock speed of 650 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM is set to run at 850 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 336 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

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

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
