GeForce GTX 1630 vs GeForce GTX 460 SE

Intro

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

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 460 SE, which makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 650 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 850 MHz on this specific card. It features 288 SPUs along with 48 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

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

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1630 will be much (approximately 78%) faster with regards to AF 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

The GeForce GTX 1630 will be quite a bit (more or less 34%) faster with regards to AA than the GeForce GTX 460 SE, and also should be able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1630 27840 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 SE 20800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 7040 (34%)

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 megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics 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 maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
