GeForce GTX 460 1GB vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 1GB makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 675 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 900 MHz on this specific card. It features 336 SPUs along with 56 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 560, which features a core clock speed of 1175 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 7000 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It is made up of 1024 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics 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 amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
