GeForce GTX 580 vs Radeon RX 470 4GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 580 makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 772 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1002 MHz on this specific card. It features 512 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 48 ROPs.

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

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics 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 chip can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
