GeForce GTX 260 vs Radeon RX 460


Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 comes with a GPU core speed of 576 MHz, and the 896 MB of GDDR3 memory runs at 999 MHz through a 448-bit bus. It also is made up of 192 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 28 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 460, which features GPU core speed of 1090 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1750 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 896 Stream Processors, 56 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 460 75 Watts
GeForce GTX 260 182 Watts
Difference: 107 Watts (143%)

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon RX 460 should in theory be just a bit faster than the GeForce GTX 260 in general. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 112000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 260 111888 MB/sec
Difference: 112 (0%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 460 should be much (approximately 66%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 260. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 61040 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 36864 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 24176 (66%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 460 will be a bit (more or less 8%) faster with regards to AA than the GeForce GTX 260, and should be able to handle higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 17440 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, the result should 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 higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, 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 card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
