GeForce GTX 1060 vs Geforce GTX 670


Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 features core clock speeds of 1506 MHz on the GPU, and 2000 MHz on the 6144 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1280 SPUs as well as 80 TAUs and 48 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Geforce GTX 670, which comes with a clock frequency of 915 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1500 MHz. It also features a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 1344 SPUs, 112 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the faster 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 calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.

Is it worth getting a GTX-1060 ,over my GTX-670 SLI.I game at 1920 x 1080. I think they would be close on most games ,I liked to go to one card. I am sure the 670 SLI would be faster on a lot of games.But the GTX 1060 has a good price and it is pretty fast.
