Geforce GTX 670 vs Radeon RX 470

Intro

The Geforce GTX 670 comes with a core clock speed of 915 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1500 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 1344 SPUs, 112 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 470, which has a GPU core clock speed of 926 MHz, and 8192 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1650 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 2048 Stream Processors, 128 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Geforce GTX 670 192000 MB/sec
Difference: 19200 (10%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 470 will be a small bit (approximately 16%) better at AF than the Geforce GTX 670. (explain)

Radeon RX 470 118528 Mtexels/sec
Geforce GTX 670 102480 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 16048 (16%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 470 is superior to the Geforce GTX 670, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

Radeon RX 470 29632 Mpixels/sec
Geforce GTX 670 29280 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 352 (1%)

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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once 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 anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the 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 maximum amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units 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 memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
