GeForce GTX 460 SE vs Radeon RX 550

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 SE features a GPU clock speed of 650 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 850 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 288 SPUs, 48 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 550, which features clock speeds of 1100 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 512 SPUs along with 32 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 550 50 Watts
GeForce GTX 460 SE 150 Watts
Difference: 100 Watts (200%)

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the Radeon RX 550 should in theory be a small bit superior to the GeForce GTX 460 SE in general. (explain)

Radeon RX 550 114688 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 460 SE 108800 MB/sec
Difference: 5888 (5%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 550 is just a bit (approximately 13%) faster with regards to 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 a better choice, not by a very large margin though. (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: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to its 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 card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel 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 get to the max fill rate.
