GeForce GTX 1630 vs Radeon R7 260X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1630 has core clock speeds of 1740 MHz on the GPU, and 1500 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR6 memory. It features 512 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R7 260X, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1100 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a frequency of 1625 MHz on this particular model. It features 896 SPUs along with 56 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 1630 75 Watts
Radeon R7 260X 115 Watts
Difference: 40 Watts (53%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R7 260X should perform a little bit faster than the GeForce GTX 1630 in general. (explain)

Radeon R7 260X 104000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1630 98304 MB/sec
Difference: 5696 (6%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 260X is just a bit (approximately 11%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 1630. (explain)

Radeon R7 260X 61600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1630 55680 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 5920 (11%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1630 is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1630 27840 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 260X 17600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 10240 (58%)

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 information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
