Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better 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 texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.

If they just added more ROP's to the Fury X, it would have been a beast.

Ionut says:

It's just the first HBM implementation, so it's kinda experimental, wait for next one, in 2016, they will get rid of some limitations, like memory speed or 4GB maximum capacity, also will be on 20/16 nm process, just imagine that dual gpu version, with over 1 million mb/sec bandwidth, and lower TDP... Also, like you said, more ROP's would be more than welcomed. I hope they will learn from their past mistakes, and deliver best performance at good prices, and optimize their drivers.

Ionut says:

The Fury X obtained disappointing benchmark results, other than what we expected, somewhere between 980 and 980 Ti. Keep in mind that there were made under DX11, we don't know what DX12 will bring. Also, I understand that they will remove the voltage and overclock limit, and with better optimized drivers, the results could change.

Felipe Cartes says:

After the last driver update. The fury x is beating the 980ti by a 4% across the board. And that's even without the crimson drivers.
