GeForce GTX 1060 3GB vs Radeon R9 M395X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 3GB has a GPU core clock speed of 1506 MHz, and the 3072 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 2000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also features 1152 Stream Processors, 72 TAUs, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 M395X, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 723 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1250 MHz on this particular model. It features 2048 SPUs as well as 128 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill 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 reach the max fill rate.
