GeForce GTX 1630 vs GeForce GTX 460 SE

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1630 makes use of a 12 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1740 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1500 MHz on this card. It features 512 SPUs as well as 32 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the GeForce GTX 460 SE, which features a core clock frequency of 650 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 850 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 288 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

GeForce GTX 1630 98304 MB/sec
Difference: 10496 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1630 should be much (more or less 78%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 460 SE. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1630 55680 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 SE 31200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 24480 (78%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1630 is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at handling 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 graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also 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 bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
