GeForce GTX 1070 vs Radeon RX 480 4GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 makes use of a 16 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1506 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 2000 MHz on this particular model. It features 1920 SPUs as well as 120 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 480 4GB, which comes with GPU clock speed of 1120 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1750 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 2304 SPUs, 144 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core 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 applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. 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 fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
