VS

GeForce GTX 460 SE vs Radeon RX 460 2GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 SE has clock speeds of 650 MHz on the GPU, and 850 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 288 SPUs as well as 48 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 460 2GB, which has GPU core speed of 1090 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1750 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 896 Stream Processors, 56 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 460 2GB is quite a bit (about 96%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 460 SE. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 2GB 61040 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 SE 31200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 29840 (96%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 460 SE will be a small bit (about 19%) better at AA than the Radeon RX 460 2GB, and will be capable of handling higher resolutions better. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 SE 20800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 460 2GB 17440 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3360 (19%)

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 information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video 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 amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
