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 RAM is set to run at 2000 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 1920 Stream Processors, 120 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 480, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1120 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 2000 MHz on this specific card. It features 2304 SPUs along with 144 Texture Address Units 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 theoretically they should perform the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1070 is a bit (about 12%) more effective at anisotropic 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 using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1070 is a better choice, 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 largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel 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 max fill rate.

same memory setting, but RX more slower than 1070 lol
