GeForce GTX 1070 vs Radeon RX 580

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 features core speeds of 1506 MHz on the GPU, and 2000 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 1920 SPUs along with 120 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 580, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1257 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 2000 MHz on this card. It features 2304 SPUs along with 144 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

GeForce GTX 1070 150 Watts
Radeon RX 580 185 Watts
Difference: 35 Watts (23%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have exactly the same memory bandwidth, so theoretically they should perform exactly the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 580 will be just a bit (more or less 0%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 1070. (explain)

Radeon RX 580 181008 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1070 180720 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 288 (0%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1070 is quite a bit (more or less 140%) more effective at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon RX 580, and will be capable of handling higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1070 96384 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 580 40224 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 56160 (140%)

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 maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of 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 per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill 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 ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
