Geforce GTX 680 vs Radeon R7 370 4G

Intro

The Geforce GTX 680 makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1006 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a speed of 1502 MHz on this particular card. It features 1536 SPUs as well as 128 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon R7 370 4G, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 975 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a speed of 1400 MHz on this specific card. It features 1024 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines 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 also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
