GeForce GTX 1070 vs Radeon RX 480


The GeForce GTX 1070 comes with a GPU clock speed of 1506 MHz, and the 8192 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 2000 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 1920 SPUs, 120 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 480, which has core speeds of 1120 MHz on the GPU, and 2000 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 2304 SPUs along with 144 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have the exact same bandwidth, so in theory they should perform exactly the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1070 is a bit (approximately 12%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon RX 480. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1070 180720 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 480 161280 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 19440 (12%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1070 is the winner, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1070 96384 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 480 35840 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 60544 (169%)

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 information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster 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 figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics 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 number of pixels the video card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.

same memory setting, but RX more slower than 1070 lol
