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 works at a speed of 900 MHz on this particular model. It features 336 SPUs along with 56 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Compare that 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 RAM. It features 1024 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 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 AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
