Compare any two graphics cards:
GeForce GTX 1060 3GB vs Geforce GTX 760
IntroThe GeForce GTX 1060 3GB has clock speeds of 1506 MHz on the GPU, and 2000 MHz on the 3072 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 1152 SPUs as well as 72 Texture Address Units and 48 ROPs.
Compare all that to the Geforce GTX 760, which has GPU core speed of 980 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1502 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 1152 Stream Processors, 96 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

As far as performance goes, the GeForce GTX 1060 3GB should in theory be a little bit superior to the Geforce GTX 760 overall. (explain)
Texel RateThe GeForce GTX 1060 3GB should be a bit (more or less 15%) better at AF than the Geforce GTX 760. (explain)
Pixel RateThe GeForce GTX 1060 3GB will be quite a bit (approximately 131%) more effective at anti-aliasing than the Geforce GTX 760, and also should be able to handle higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (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.
Please note that the price comparisons are based on search keywords - sometimes it might show cards with very similar names that are not exactly the same as the one chosen in the comparison. We do try to filter out the wrong results as best we can, though.
Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, 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 amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory per 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 fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
