GeForce GTX 1060 3GB vs GeForce GTX 560 Ti


Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 3GB uses a 16 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 1506 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 2000 MHz on this card. It features 1152 SPUs along with 72 Texture Address Units and 48 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, which features GPU clock speed of 822 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1002 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 384 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling 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 the video 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 Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
