GeForce GTX 1060 vs Geforce GTX 670


Intro

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

Compare those specifications to the Geforce GTX 670, which comes with a core clock frequency of 915 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1500 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It features 1344 SPUs, 112 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 1060 120 Watts
Geforce GTX 670 170 Watts
Difference: 50 Watts (42%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 1060 will be 2% quicker than the Geforce GTX 670 in general, because of its higher bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1060 196608 MB/sec
Geforce GTX 670 192000 MB/sec
Difference: 4608 (2%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1060 is just a bit (approximately 18%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Geforce GTX 670. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1060 120480 Mtexels/sec
Geforce GTX 670 102480 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 18000 (18%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1060 is a better choice, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1060 72288 Mpixels/sec
Geforce GTX 670 29280 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 43008 (147%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's 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 are applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the clock 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 quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum 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.
