Nvidia Titan X vs Radeon R9 295X2


Intro

The Nvidia Titan X uses a 16 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 1417 MHz. The GDDR5X RAM works at a frequency of 1251 MHz on this particular card. It features 3584 SPUs along with 224 Texture Address Units and 96 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 295X2, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1018 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 1250 MHz on this specific card. It features 2816 SPUs along with 176 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Nvidia Titan X 317408 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 40928 (13%)

Pixel Rate

The Nvidia Titan X will be just a bit (about 4%) better at AA than the Radeon R9 295X2, and also capable of handling higher screen resolutions better. (explain)

Nvidia Titan X 136032 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 295X2 130304 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5728 (4%)

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.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
