GeForce GTX 460 2GB vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 2GB comes with core clock speeds of 675 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 336 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 560, which features GPU clock speed of 1175 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 7000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 1024 Stream Processors, 64 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 460 2GB will be 0% faster than the Radeon RX 560 in general, due to its higher data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 2GB 115200 MB/sec
Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
Difference: 512 (0%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 is a lot (about 99%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 460 2GB. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 2GB 37800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 37400 (99%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 460 2GB will be just a bit (more or less 15%) more effective at FSAA than the Radeon RX 560, and will be capable of handling higher screen resolutions better. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 2GB 21600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2800 (15%)

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 data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. 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 higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core 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 output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
