GeForce GTX 1050 vs Radeon RX 460


Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 comes with a GPU core clock speed of 1354 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM runs at 1750 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 640 Stream Processors, 40 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

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 memory works at a speed of 1750 MHz on this specific card. It features 896 SPUs as well as 56 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 1050 will be 2% quicker than the Radeon RX 460 in general, due to its higher data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 114688 MB/sec
Radeon RX 460 112000 MB/sec
Difference: 2688 (2%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 460 will be a small bit (approximately 13%) better at AF than the GeForce GTX 1050. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 61040 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 54160 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6880 (13%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 is the winner, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 43328 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 460 17440 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 25888 (148%)

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 information (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better 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 most pixels the video card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
