GeForce GTX 1050 vs Radeon RX 460 2GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 comes with a core clock speed of 1354 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1750 MHz. It also features a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It is comprised of 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 460 2GB, which comes with core clock speeds of 1090 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 896 SPUs along with 56 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce GTX 1050, in theory, should perform a little bit faster than the Radeon RX 460 2GB overall. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 460 2GB is a small bit (more or less 13%) better at AF than the GeForce GTX 1050. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 2GB 61040 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 54160 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6880 (13%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 should be much (more or less 148%) better at FSAA than the Radeon RX 460 2GB, and capable of handling higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 43328 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 460 2GB 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 max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, 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 the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
