GeForce GTX 1060 3GB vs Radeon R9 285


Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 3GB makes use of a 16 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1506 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 2000 MHz on this particular model. It features 1152 SPUs along with 72 Texture Address Units and 48 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 285, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 918 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1375 MHz on this model. It features 1792 SPUs along with 112 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core 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 applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends 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 max fill rate.
