GeForce GT 450 (OEM) vs GeForce GTX 460

Intro

The GeForce GT 450 (OEM) has core speeds of 790 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 1536 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 144 SPUs along with 24 Texture Address Units and 24 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 460, which has a core clock frequency of 675 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 900 MHz. It also makes use of a 192-bit memory bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It is made up of 336 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 24 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high 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 texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
