GeForce GTX 460 vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 comes with a clock speed of 675 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 900 MHz. It also features a 192-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 336 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 24 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 M370X, which has clock speeds of 800 MHz on the GPU, and 1125 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 460 should be 20% quicker than the Radeon R9 M370X in general, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 86400 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 72000 MB/sec
Difference: 14400 (20%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 460 should be a bit (about 18%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R9 M370X. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 37800 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 5800 (18%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 460 is superior to the Radeon R9 M370X, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 16200 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3400 (27%)

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 largest amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number 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 also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
