VS

GeForce GTX 1630 vs Radeon RX 460

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1630 makes use of a 12 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1740 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM works at a frequency of 1500 MHz on this card. It features 512 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 460, which has a core clock frequency of 1090 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1750 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It is comprised of 896 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the Radeon RX 460 should perform a small bit faster than the GeForce GTX 1630 in general. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 460 should be just a bit (approximately 10%) better 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

The GeForce GTX 1630 should be a lot (more or less 60%) faster with regards to AA than the Radeon RX 460, and also should be capable of handling higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (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: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. 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 fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
