Compare any two graphics cards:
Geforce GTX 770 vs Radeon RX 580
IntroThe Geforce GTX 770 comes with a GPU core clock speed of 1046 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM is set to run at 1753 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 1536 Stream Processors, 128 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.
Compare that to the Radeon RX 580, which comes with GPU core speed of 1257 MHz, and 8192 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 2000 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 2304 SPUs, 144 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

As far as performance goes, the Radeon RX 580 should in theory be a small bit superior to the Geforce GTX 770 in general. (explain)
Texel RateThe Radeon RX 580 should be much (about 35%) more effective at AF than the Geforce GTX 770. (explain)
Pixel RateThe Radeon RX 580 will be a small bit (about 20%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the Geforce GTX 770, and also will be capable of handling higher resolutions while still performing well. (explain)
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.
Please note that the price comparisons are based on search keywords - sometimes it might show cards with very similar names that are not exactly the same as the one chosen in the comparison. We do try to filter out the wrong results as best we can, though.
Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most 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 worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. 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 rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
