GeForce GTX 590 vs Radeon R7 370 2G

Intro

The GeForce GTX 590 has a GPU core clock speed of 607 MHz, and the 1536 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 855 MHz through a 384-bit bus. It also features 512 Stream Processors, 64 Texture Address Units, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon R7 370 2G, which has core speeds of 975 MHz on the GPU, and 1400 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1024 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Difference: 15296 (25%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 590 is quite a bit (more or less 87%) better at anti-aliasing than the Radeon R7 370 2G, and also capable of handling higher resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

GeForce GTX 590 58272 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 370 2G 31200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 27072 (87%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
