VS

GeForce GTX 1060 vs GeForce GTX 1060 3GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 features core speeds of 1506 MHz on the GPU, and 2000 MHz on the 6144 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 1280 SPUs along with 80 Texture Address Units and 48 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the GeForce GTX 1060 3GB, which makes use of a 16 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1506 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 2000 MHz on this specific card. It features 1152 SPUs along with 72 TAUs and 48 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have the exact same bandwidth, so in theory they should perform the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1060 should be a little bit (more or less 11%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 1060 3GB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1060 120480 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1060 3GB 108432 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 12048 (11%)

Pixel Rate

Both cards have the exact same pixel fill rate, so theoretically they should perform equally good at at AA, and be able to handle the same resolutions. (explain)

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 maximum amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

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