Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure 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 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 maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.

Best gtx-760.......for power Efficency & Power

Anonymous says:

If you don't care about physx, cuda, etc.. And that the power consumption and heat doesn't bother you, go with the r9 280. If you care go with gtx 760

GreenerThanGrass says:

It's clear, R9 280x WINS.

r9 frame rate + mantle 🙂

john petter says:

250w ?.. AMD clowning as usual ..even the light years more powerful GTX 980 is only 165w

thetruth says:

gtx 760 wins cuz we have better driver support cuz amd has doo doo driver support.
