GeForce GTX 470 vs Radeon RX 460

Intro

The GeForce GTX 470 has a GPU core clock speed of 607 MHz, and the 1280 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 837 MHz through a 320-bit bus. It also is made up of 448 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 40 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 460, which uses a 14 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1090 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 1750 MHz on this card. It features 896 SPUs along with 56 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Radeon RX 460 112000 MB/sec
Difference: 21920 (20%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 460 is a lot (approximately 80%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 470. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 61040 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 470 33992 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 27048 (80%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 470 is superior to the Radeon RX 460, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 470 24280 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 460 17440 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6840 (39%)

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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, 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 texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock 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 applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
