VS

GeForce GTX 460 SE vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 460 SE comes with a core clock frequency of 650 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 850 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 288 SPUs, 48 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 560, which comes with GPU core speed of 1175 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1750 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 1024 Stream Processors, 64 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 560 80 Watts
GeForce GTX 460 SE 150 Watts
Difference: 70 Watts (88%)

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon RX 560, in theory, should perform a small bit faster than the GeForce GTX 460 SE overall. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 460 SE 108800 MB/sec
Difference: 5888 (5%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 will be much (approximately 141%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GTX 460 SE. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 SE 31200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 44000 (141%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 460 SE is the winner, but it probably won't make a huge difference. (explain)

GeForce GTX 460 SE 20800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2000 (11%)

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 (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster 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 applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at handling 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 chip could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
