GeForce GTX 260 vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 uses a 65 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 576 MHz. The GDDR3 memory is set to run at a frequency of 999 MHz on this card. It features 192 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units and 28 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 560, which features a core clock frequency of 1175 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 7000 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It features 1024 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the 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 maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
