GeForce GTX 590 vs GeForce GTX Titan Black

Intro

The GeForce GTX 590 comes with a GPU core speed of 607 MHz, and the 1536 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 855 MHz through a 384-bit bus. It also features 512 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the GeForce GTX Titan Black, which makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 889 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a speed of 1750 MHz on this particular model. It features 2880 SPUs along with 240 TAUs and 48 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX Titan Black 250 Watts
GeForce GTX 590 365 Watts
Difference: 115 Watts (46%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce GTX Titan Black will be 2% quicker than the GeForce GTX 590 in general, due to its greater bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce GTX Titan Black 336000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 590 328320 MB/sec
Difference: 7680 (2%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX Titan Black should be a lot (more or less 175%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 590. (explain)

GeForce GTX Titan Black 213360 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 590 77696 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 135664 (175%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 590 should be quite a bit (about 37%) better at AA than the GeForce GTX Titan Black, and will be able to handle higher screen resolutions more effectively. (explain)

GeForce GTX 590 58272 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX Titan Black 42672 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 15600 (37%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock 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 memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total 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 per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
