GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm vs Radeon RX 460


Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm features clock speeds of 576 MHz on the GPU, and 999 MHz on the 896 MB of GDDR3 memory. It features 216 SPUs as well as 72 TAUs and 28 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 460, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1090 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this specific model. It features 896 SPUs as well as 56 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 460 should be a lot (approximately 47%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 61040 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm 41472 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 19568 (47%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 460 is just a bit (approximately 8%) more effective at FSAA than the GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm, and also will be able to handle higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 17440 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm 16128 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1312 (8%)

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 bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once 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 AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core 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 a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock 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 also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
