GeForce GTX 1080 vs Geforce GTX 770

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1080 comes with a clock speed of 1607 MHz and a GDDR5X memory speed of 1251 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 16 nm design. It is comprised of 2560 SPUs, 160 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Geforce GTX 770, which makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1046 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 1753 MHz on this specific model. It features 1536 SPUs along with 128 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends 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.
