GeForce GTX 460 SE vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 SE makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 650 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 850 MHz on this particular model. It features 288 SPUs as well as 48 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 560, which comes with 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 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 560 80 Watts
GeForce GTX 460 SE 150 Watts
Difference: 70 Watts (88%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon RX 560 should be a bit faster than the GeForce GTX 460 SE overall. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 460 SE 108800 MB/sec
Difference: 5888 (5%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 is a lot (approximately 141%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 460 SE. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 SE 31200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 44000 (141%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 460 SE should be just a bit (about 11%) more effective at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon RX 560, and also should be capable of handling higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 SE 20800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2000 (11%)

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: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If 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 high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
