GeForce GTX 570 vs Radeon R9 M390X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 570 makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 732 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 950 MHz on this specific card. It features 480 SPUs as well as 60 Texture Address Units and 40 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 M390X, which features a clock speed of 723 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1250 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 2048 SPUs, 128 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

The Radeon R9 M390X should be quite a bit (approximately 111%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 570. (explain)

Radeon R9 M390X 92544 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 570 43920 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 48624 (111%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 570 should be a lot (about 27%) better at AA than the Radeon R9 M390X, and capable of handling higher screen resolutions better. (explain)

GeForce GTX 570 29280 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M390X 23136 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6144 (27%)

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.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units 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 processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
