GeForce GTX 1060 vs Radeon R9 380 2G

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 comes with a GPU core clock speed of 1506 MHz, and the 6144 MB of GDDR5 RAM runs at 2000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1280 SPUs, 80 TAUs, and 48 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 380 2G, which features a GPU core clock speed of 970 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1425 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 1792 SPUs, 112 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of 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 texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
