GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 vs Radeon RX 460


Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 comes with a clock speed of 576 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 999 MHz. It also uses a 448-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 65 nm design. It is comprised of 216 SPUs, 72 TAUs, and 28 ROPs.

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

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once 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 number of 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 higher this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one 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 number is worked out by multiplying the number of colour 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 output rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
