GeForce GT 450 (OEM) vs Radeon RX 460


Intro

The GeForce GT 450 (OEM) has core clock speeds of 790 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 1536 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 144 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 24 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 460, which has a clock speed of 1090 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1750 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It features 896 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

GeForce GT 450 (OEM) 96000 MB/sec
Difference: 16000 (17%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 460 should be much (more or less 222%) better at AF than the GeForce GT 450 (OEM). (explain)

Radeon RX 460 61040 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 450 (OEM) 18960 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 42080 (222%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GT 450 (OEM) should be just a bit (more or less 9%) faster with regards to FSAA than the Radeon RX 460, and also capable of handling higher screen resolutions better. (explain)

GeForce GT 450 (OEM) 18960 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 460 17440 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1520 (9%)

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 max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This 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 card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called 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.
