GeForce GTX 260 vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 has a GPU core clock speed of 576 MHz, and the 896 MB of GDDR3 RAM is set to run at 999 MHz through a 448-bit bus. It also is comprised of 192 Stream Processors, 64 TAUs, and 28 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 560, which features core clock 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 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 560 80 Watts
GeForce GTX 260 182 Watts
Difference: 102 Watts (128%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon RX 560 should be a little bit faster than the GeForce GTX 260 in general. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 will be quite a bit (about 104%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 260. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 36864 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 38336 (104%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 560 is superior to the GeForce GTX 260, though not by far. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 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 maximum amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core 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 also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
