GeForce GTX 460 (OEM) vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 (OEM) has a core clock speed of 650 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 850 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is made up of 336 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 560, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1175 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 7000 MHz on this specific card. It features 1024 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock 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 output rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
