GeForce GTX 460 1GB vs Radeon HD 5770


Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 1GB comes with core speeds of 675 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 336 SPUs as well as 56 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the Radeon HD 5770, which comes with a clock frequency of 850 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1200 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It features 800(160x5) SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

GeForce GTX 460 1GB 37800 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5770 34000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 3800 (11%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 460 1GB is a lot (more or less 59%) faster with regards to AA than the Radeon HD 5770, and able to handle higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 1GB 21600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 5770 13600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 8000 (59%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics 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 amount of pixels the video card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
