GeForce GTX 460 SE vs Radeon RX 550

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 SE makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 650 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 850 MHz on this card. It features 288 SPUs as well as 48 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 550, which comes with clock speeds of 1100 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 512 SPUs along with 32 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

GeForce GTX 460 SE 108800 MB/sec
Difference: 5888 (5%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 550 should be a bit (approximately 13%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 460 SE. (explain)

Radeon RX 550 35200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 SE 31200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 4000 (13%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 460 SE is the winner, though not by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 SE 20800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 550 17600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3200 (18%)

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 maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video 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 number of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
