VS

GeForce GTX 1630 vs Radeon RX 460 2GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1630 uses a 12 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 1740 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM works at a frequency of 1500 MHz on this particular model. It features 512 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 460 2GB, which has core clock speeds of 1090 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 896 SPUs as well as 56 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon RX 460 2GB should be 14% quicker than the GeForce GTX 1630 overall, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 2GB 112000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1630 98304 MB/sec
Difference: 13696 (14%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 460 2GB will be a small bit (about 10%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 1630. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 2GB 61040 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1630 55680 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 5360 (10%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1630 is a better choice, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1630 27840 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 460 2GB 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 maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the 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 are applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
