GeForce GTX 1060 vs Radeon RX 570

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 makes use of a 16 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1506 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 2000 MHz on this specific model. It features 1280 SPUs as well as 80 TAUs and 48 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 570, which comes with a core clock frequency of 1168 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It is made up of 2048 SPUs, 128 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the faster 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 texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. 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 rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
