GeForce GTX 1060 vs Radeon RX 470 4GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 comes with a GPU clock speed of 1506 MHz, and the 6144 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 2000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also features 1280 Stream Processors, 80 TAUs, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 470 4GB, which has a core clock frequency of 926 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1650 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It is comprised of 2048 SPUs, 128 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon RX 470 4GB should theoretically perform just a bit faster than the GeForce GTX 1060 in general. (explain)

Radeon RX 470 4GB 211200 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1060 196608 MB/sec
Difference: 14592 (7%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1060 should be a little bit (about 2%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon RX 470 4GB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1060 120480 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 470 4GB 118528 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 1952 (2%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1060 is quite a bit (more or less 144%) faster with regards to anti-aliasing than the Radeon RX 470 4GB, and also should be capable of handling higher resolutions more effectively. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1060 72288 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 470 4GB 29632 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 42656 (144%)

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.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video 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 amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
