GeForce GTX Titan X vs Radeon R9 295X2

Intro

The GeForce GTX Titan X has a core clock speed of 1000 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1750 MHz. It also makes use of a 384-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 3072 SPUs, 192 Texture Address Units, and 96 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 295X2, which has clock speeds of 1018 MHz on the GPU, and 1250 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 2816 SPUs as well as 176 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Radeon R9 295X2 500 Watts
Difference: 250 Watts (100%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R9 295X2 should be 90% quicker than the GeForce GTX Titan X overall, due to its greater data rate. (explain)

Radeon R9 295X2 640000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX Titan X 336000 MB/sec
Difference: 304000 (90%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 295X2 is quite a bit (more or less 87%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX Titan X. (explain)

Radeon R9 295X2 358336 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX Titan X 192000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 166336 (87%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon R9 295X2 is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon R9 295X2 130304 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX Titan X 96000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 34304 (36%)

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: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics 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 the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.

It's funny that nVidia even tries to sell the Titan X, since the Z is upcoming and the R9 295X2 is way better than anything nVidia has made (and easily $450 cheaper)

Thank you finally someone with some sense!

Two great cards. Make no mistake.

I bought a 295X2 a month ago and the performance / price point is absolutely astonishing. I'm absolutely aware that nVidia's Titan X is a faster 'single core' performer, but every AAA game that I've played so far has run like a banshee without any issues. The exception is Titanfall, but that game is so bad it's hardly an issue.

Battlefield 4 and Shadow of Mordore are just insane for example. The only thing that might usurp it is the forthcoming 390X, but I can't see it happening, hence I made the purchase!

jajajaj
donde estan los de Nvidia?
