GeForce GTX 570 vs Radeon R9 M295X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 570 comes with a core clock frequency of 732 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 950 MHz. It also uses a 320-bit memory bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It features 480 SPUs, 60 TAUs, and 40 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 M295X, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 750 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a frequency of 1375 MHz on this card. It features 2048 SPUs as well as 128 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to 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 bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
