GeForce GTX 460 vs GeForce GTX 560 Ti

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 comes with a clock frequency of 675 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 900 MHz. It also uses a 192-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It features 336 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 24 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, which features GPU core speed of 822 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1002 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 384 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 460 150 Watts
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 170 Watts
Difference: 20 Watts (13%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 560 Ti is 48% faster than the GeForce GTX 460 overall, because of its higher bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 128256 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 460 86400 MB/sec
Difference: 41856 (48%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti is quite a bit (more or less 39%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce GTX 460. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 52608 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 37800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 14808 (39%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti is much (approximately 62%) better at AA than the GeForce GTX 460, and should be able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 26304 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 16200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 10104 (62%)

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 maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
