GeForce GTX 1060 vs Radeon RX 470

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 features a clock speed of 1506 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 2000 MHz. It also features a 192-bit bus, and uses a 16 nm design. It is comprised of 1280 SPUs, 80 TAUs, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 470, which comes with GPU clock speed of 926 MHz, and 8192 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1650 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also 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

Performance-wise, the Radeon RX 470 should theoretically be just a bit superior to the GeForce GTX 1060 in general. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1060 is a little bit (about 2%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon RX 470. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1060 should be quite a bit (more or less 144%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon RX 470, and also should be able to handle higher resolutions more effectively. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1060 72288 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 470 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 largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

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