GeForce GTX 460 1GB vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 1GB features a GPU core speed of 675 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM is set to run at 900 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 336 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 560, which features GPU core speed of 1175 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 7000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 1024 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 560 80 Watts
GeForce GTX 460 1GB 160 Watts
Difference: 80 Watts (100%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce GTX 460 1GB should be 0% faster than the Radeon RX 560 in general, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 1GB 115200 MB/sec
Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
Difference: 512 (0%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 should be a lot (approximately 99%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 460 1GB. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 1GB 37800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 37400 (99%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 460 1GB is superior to the Radeon RX 560, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 1GB 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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to 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.
