GeForce GTX 1070 vs Radeon RX 580

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 has core clock 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 that to the Radeon RX 580, which has a GPU core clock speed of 1257 MHz, and 8192 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 2000 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 2304 Stream Processors, 144 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

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

Memory Bandwidth

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 580 should be just a bit (about 0%) more effective at anisotropic 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 should be much (about 140%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon RX 580, and should be capable of handling higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
