GeForce GTX 460 (OEM) vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 (OEM) makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 650 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 850 MHz on this specific card. It features 336 SPUs as well as 56 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Compare all 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 memory. It features 1024 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better 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 number of 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 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 processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output 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 maximum fill rate.
