GeForce GTX 970 224000 MB/sec
Difference: 112000 (50%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX Titan X is quite a bit (about 76%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GTX 970. (explain)

GeForce GTX Titan X 192000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 970 109200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 82800 (76%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX Titan X is a better choice, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX Titan X 96000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 970 67200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 28800 (43%)

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.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock 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 one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on 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.
