GeForce GTX 480 vs Radeon RX 470


Intro

The GeForce GTX 480 has a core clock frequency of 700 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 924 MHz. It also makes use of a 384-bit bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It features 480 SPUs, 60 TAUs, and 48 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 470, which uses a 14 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 926 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 1650 MHz on this particular model. It features 2048 SPUs as well as 128 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 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 AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock 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 a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's 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 quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
