GeForce GTX 1060 3GB vs Radeon R9 380X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 3GB features a GPU clock speed of 1506 MHz, and the 3072 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 2000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1152 Stream Processors, 72 Texture Address Units, and 48 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 380X, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 970 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a speed of 1425 MHz on this particular card. It features 2048 SPUs as well as 128 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the 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 number of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends 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 max fill rate.
