GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm vs Radeon RX 460


Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm features a clock frequency of 576 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 999 MHz. It also features a 448-bit memory bus, and uses a 55 nm design. It features 216 SPUs, 72 Texture Address Units, and 28 Raster Operation Units.

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

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over 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 RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel 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.
