GeForce GTX 460 (OEM) vs Radeon RX 460

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 (OEM) comes with core speeds of 650 MHz on the GPU, and 850 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 336 SPUs along with 56 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 460, which has clock speeds of 1090 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 896 SPUs as well as 56 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 460 75 Watts
GeForce GTX 460 (OEM) 150 Watts
Difference: 75 Watts (100%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon RX 460 should be just a bit faster than the GeForce GTX 460 (OEM) overall. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 112000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 460 (OEM) 108800 MB/sec
Difference: 3200 (3%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 460 will be quite a bit (more or less 68%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 460 (OEM). (explain)

Radeon RX 460 61040 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 (OEM) 36400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 24640 (68%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 460 (OEM) is the winner, though not by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 (OEM) 20800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 460 17440 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3360 (19%)

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 largest amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This number 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 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 chip could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
