GeForce GTX Titan vs Radeon RX 480

Intro

The GeForce GTX Titan makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 837 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1502 MHz on this particular model. It features 2688 SPUs along with 224 Texture Address Units and 48 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 480, which features a clock speed of 1120 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 2000 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It is made up of 2304 SPUs, 144 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high 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 number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as 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, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
