Compare any two graphics cards:
VS

GeForce GTX 1650 vs Radeon RX 460 2GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1650 uses a 12 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1485 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 2001 MHz on this particular card. It features 896 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 460 2GB, which comes with clock speeds of 1090 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 896 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 1650 should perform just a bit faster than the Radeon RX 460 2GB overall. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1650 131072 MB/sec
Radeon RX 460 2GB 112000 MB/sec
Difference: 19072 (17%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1650 is a lot (more or less 36%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon RX 460 2GB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1650 83160 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 460 2GB 61040 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 22120 (36%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1650 should be much (approximately 172%) better at AA than the Radeon RX 460 2GB, and also will be able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1650 47520 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 460 2GB 17440 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 30080 (172%)

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 MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
