Compare any two graphics cards:
Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB vs Radeon RX 460
IntroThe Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB comes with a core clock frequency of 650 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 900 MHz. It also features a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 480 SPUs, 24 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.
Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 460, which has a clock frequency of 1090 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1750 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It is comprised of 896 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
The Radeon RX 460, in theory, should perform quite a bit faster than the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB in general. (explain)
Texel RateThe Radeon RX 460 is a lot (about 291%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB. (explain)
Pixel RateThe Radeon RX 460 should be quite a bit (about 235%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB, and should be able to handle higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (explain)
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 maximum amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the card will be at 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 chip could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock 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 output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
