GeForce GTX 460 2GB vs Radeon RX 460

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 2GB uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 675 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 900 MHz on this specific card. It features 336 SPUs along with 56 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 460, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1090 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a speed of 1750 MHz on this card. It features 896 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Radeon RX 460 75 Watts
GeForce GTX 460 2GB 160 Watts
Difference: 85 Watts (113%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 460 2GB should be 3% faster than the Radeon RX 460 overall, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 2GB 115200 MB/sec
Radeon RX 460 112000 MB/sec
Difference: 3200 (3%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 460 is much (about 61%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GTX 460 2GB. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 61040 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 2GB 37800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 23240 (61%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 460 2GB is superior to the Radeon RX 460, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 2GB 21600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 460 17440 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4160 (24%)

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 across the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
