GeForce GTX 460 vs Radeon HD 5750 1GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 675 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a speed of 900 MHz on this model. It features 336 SPUs as well as 56 TAUs and 24 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 5750 1GB, which comes with a clock speed of 700 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1150 MHz. It also features a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It features 720(144x5) SPUs, 36 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core 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 quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
