GeForce GTX 460 SE vs Radeon RX 460


Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 SE has a core clock frequency of 650 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 850 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It is made up of 288 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 460, which uses a 14 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1090 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this specific model. It features 896 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

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

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon RX 460 should be 3% faster than the GeForce GTX 460 SE overall, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 460 is quite a bit (more or less 96%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 460 SE. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 61040 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 SE 31200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 29840 (96%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 460 SE is superior to the Radeon RX 460, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 SE 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: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result 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 higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
