GeForce GTX 460 vs GeForce GTX 560 Ti

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 comes with a GPU clock speed of 675 MHz, and the 768 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 900 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also features 336 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 24 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, which makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 822 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1002 MHz on this particular model. It features 384 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must 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 anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is worked out 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 processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
