VS

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti vs Radeon RX 460 2GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti has a clock frequency of 1290 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It is made up of 768 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 460 2GB, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1090 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1750 MHz on this card. It features 896 SPUs as well as 56 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 114688 MB/sec
Radeon RX 460 2GB 112000 MB/sec
Difference: 2688 (2%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti will be just a bit (approximately 1%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon RX 460 2GB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 61920 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 460 2GB 61040 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 880 (1%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 41280 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 460 2GB 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: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better 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 can be processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core 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 in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. 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 quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
