GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 has a clock speed of 576 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 999 MHz. It also features a 448-bit memory bus, and uses a 65 nm design. It features 216 SPUs, 72 TAUs, and 28 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 560, which comes with core 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

Performance-wise, the Radeon RX 560 should theoretically be just a bit better than the GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 overall. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 111888 MB/sec
Difference: 2800 (3%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 will be a lot (about 81%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 260 Core 216. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 41472 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 33728 (81%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon RX 560 is a better choice, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 16128 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2672 (17%)

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 max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's 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 are applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock 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 in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics 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 number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
