GeForce GTX 980 vs GeForce GTX Titan Black

Intro

The GeForce GTX 980 makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1126 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a speed of 1750 MHz on this specific model. It features 2048 SPUs as well as 128 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX Titan Black, which uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 889 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1750 MHz on this particular card. It features 2880 SPUs along with 240 Texture Address Units and 48 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number 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 filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
