GeForce GTX 1060 vs Radeon R7 240

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 features a GPU core clock speed of 1506 MHz, and the 6144 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 2000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is made up of 1280 SPUs, 80 Texture Address Units, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon R7 240, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 730 MHz. The DDR3 RAM runs at a speed of 900 MHz on this specific card. It features 320 SPUs along with 20 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses 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 high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the 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 most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
