GeForce GTX Titan vs Radeon HD 7990


The GeForce GTX Titan has a clock frequency of 837 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1502 MHz. It also makes use of a 384-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 2688 SPUs, 224 TAUs, and 48 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 7990, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 950 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 1500 MHz on this card. It features 2048 SPUs along with 128 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 7990 should be quite a bit (more or less 30%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX Titan. (explain)

Radeon HD 7990 243200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX Titan 187488 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 55712 (30%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon HD 7990 is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon HD 7990 60800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX Titan 40176 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 20624 (51%)

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.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. 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 also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.

The Titan is a strong card on paper but with only one GPU core that is so strong it’s not as strong as a 7990. 7990 features 6GB GDDR5 memory the same as the Titan so I ask why and how can it be faster than the Titan? It’s very simple. The Titan has only one GPU running at 384 bit and its amazing how fast It can process information, but the 7990 has a Dual Core GPU each running at 384 bit’s of bandwidth splitting the work and easing the tension on the cores. If they brought out the Titan x2 I.E the Titan with Dual Core GPU each at 384bit’s it would be a mach for the 7990, but for now the 7990 is the superior card. Also a card to look at is the GTX 690!!!

edson says:

so compara 7990 with 690 gtx that is a dual gpu too and close your mouth

Anonymous says:

Or compare a gtx Titan sli to the 7990. That's 2 gpus.

Tommy says:

Compare price of 2x titan to 7990 😉

Anonymous says:

If you compare the Titan in sli you also have to compare the costs of both. 2 Titans will run you around 2 grand without tax and for that cost you can also get 2 7990s with a few hundred bucks left over, So make your pick.

Sovak says:

Just wait for GTX 790 will be double titan, and you are comparing SINGLE graphic card to a dual - which is retarded ...

Helel says:

LOL 7990 is a way STRONGER then titan.

....and the price of 7990 is like half of titan.

So, why I have to pick titan? LOL. I'll pick 7990 of course XDD

John Cock says:

I Wipe My Ass With Titans

Solomeo says:

yeah idiots wait for titan x2 and compare the price xD at least they will sell that card for 1.800 USD

D00ms0ldier says:

In all logical terms the 7970 may have more power but it still comes down to drivers, nvidia drivers have always been more stable and draw out more and more performance with each consecutive update where as the drivers for AMD cards always play up and throw 40% of the cards performance out the window before its even doing anything. So when it comes right down practical application instead of theoretical performance, nvidia cards will always come out on top until good solid drivers come out for AMD

dd says:

gtx titan is suck!!

Anonymous says:

7990 is essentially 2 7970s on one card ,so instead of looking at this compare the titan to two 7970s in crossfire and, honestly both "suck" as two 7970s cost less than the 7990 and the 780ti costs less than a titan and is equally, if not more, powerfull.
