Geforce GTX 670 vs Radeon RX 470 4GB

Intro

The Geforce GTX 670 makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 915 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1500 MHz on this specific model. It features 1344 SPUs as well as 112 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 470 4GB, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 926 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1650 MHz on this particular model. It features 2048 SPUs along with 128 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better 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 per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
