GeForce GTX 1070 vs Radeon RX 480


Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 has 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 Stream Processors, 120 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 480, which uses a 14 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1120 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 2000 MHz on this particular card. It features 2304 SPUs as well as 144 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

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

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1070 will be a bit (approximately 12%) more effective at texture filtering 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 (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over 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 RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number 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 maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the clock 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 output rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.

same memory setting, but RX more slower than 1070 lol
