VS

GeForce GTX 1630 vs Radeon RX 460

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1630 features clock speeds of 1740 MHz on the GPU, and 1500 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 512 SPUs along with 32 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 460, which comes with GPU clock speed of 1090 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1750 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 896 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon RX 460 should perform a bit faster than the GeForce GTX 1630 overall. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 112000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1630 98304 MB/sec
Difference: 13696 (14%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 460 should be a little bit (approximately 10%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 1630. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 61040 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1630 55680 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 5360 (10%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1630 is superior to the Radeon RX 460, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1630 27840 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 460 17440 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 10400 (60%)

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 max amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock 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 processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core 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 output rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
