GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm comes with a GPU clock speed of 576 MHz, and the 896 MB of GDDR3 memory runs at 999 MHz through a 448-bit bus. It also is comprised of 216 SPUs, 72 TAUs, and 28 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 560, which features a core clock speed of 1175 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 7000 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It is made up of 1024 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video 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 maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can 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 Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
