Radeon R7 260X vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The Radeon R7 260X comes with a clock frequency of 1100 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1625 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is made up of 896 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 560, which comes with core clock speeds of 1175 MHz on the GPU, and 7000 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1024 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Radeon R7 260X 104000 MB/sec
Difference: 10688 (10%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 will be a lot (about 22%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon R7 260X. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 260X 61600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 13600 (22%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon RX 560 is the winner, but not by far. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 260X 17600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1200 (7%)

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 (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better 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 can be processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
