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 features 640 Stream Processors, 40 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 460, which comes with GPU clock speed of 1090 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1750 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 896 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce GTX 1050 will be 2% faster than the Radeon RX 460 overall, due to its higher bandwidth. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 460 is a bit (about 13%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 1050. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 is a better choice, and very much so. (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 maximum amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
