GeForce GTX 970 vs Geforce GTX 780

Intro

The GeForce GTX 970 features a GPU core speed of 1050 MHz, and the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 1750 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 1664 Stream Processors, 104 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Geforce GTX 780, which features core clock speeds of 863 MHz on the GPU, and 1502 MHz on the 3072 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 2304 SPUs as well as 192 Texture Address Units and 48 Rasterization Operator Units.

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 within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster 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 are applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number 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 outputting the pixels (image) to 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 potential to get to the maximum fill rate.

This comparison is slightly misleading. Maxwell is more efficient than Kepler and so a narrower bus width (256 -bit for Maxwell, 384-bit for Kepler) does not mean Maxwell is objectively slower than its respective Kepler counterpart. A direct (paper spec) comparison will always be significantly misleading in this regard, when comparing Maxwell to previous generations.

How it make GTX 780 20M/s Ethereum Mining !

it's very hard i think to do that ?
