GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm makes use of a 55 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 576 MHz. The GDDR3 memory is set to run at a speed of 999 MHz on this particular model. It features 216 SPUs as well as 72 TAUs and 28 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 560, which features core speeds of 1175 MHz on the GPU, and 7000 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1024 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 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 anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called 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, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
