GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 vs GeForce GTX 465

Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 comes with a GPU core speed of 576 MHz, and the 896 MB of GDDR3 RAM runs at 999 MHz through a 448-bit bus. It also is comprised of 216 Stream Processors, 72 TAUs, and 28 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 465, which features GPU clock speed of 607 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 802 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 352 SPUs, 44 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 465 200 Watts
GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 202 Watts
Difference: 2 Watts (1%)

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 should in theory be a small bit superior to the GeForce GTX 465 overall. (explain)

GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 111888 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 465 102592 MB/sec
Difference: 9296 (9%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 should be quite a bit (approximately 55%) better at AF than the GeForce GTX 465. (explain)

GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 41472 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 465 26708 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 14764 (55%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 465 is superior to the GeForce GTX 260 Core 216, but not by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 465 19424 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 16128 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3296 (20%)

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 max amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
