Radeon RX 460 112000 MB/sec
Difference: 2688 (2%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is just a bit (approximately 1%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon RX 460. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 61920 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 460 61040 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 880 (1%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is superior to the Radeon RX 460, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 41280 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 460 17440 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 23840 (137%)

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 largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of 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 processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill 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 get to the maximum fill rate.
