GeForce GTX 1070 vs Radeon Vega Frontier Edition

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 comes with a clock speed of 1506 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 2000 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 16 nm design. It features 1920 SPUs, 120 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, which comes with core clock speeds of 1382 MHz on the GPU, and 1890 MHz on the 16384 MB of HBM2 RAM. It features 4096 SPUs as well as 256 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

GeForce GTX 1070 150 Watts
Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 300 Watts
Difference: 150 Watts (100%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition will be 89% faster than the GeForce GTX 1070 in general, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 495452 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1070 262144 MB/sec
Difference: 233308 (89%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition should be a lot (more or less 96%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 1070. (explain)

Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 353792 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1070 180720 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 173072 (96%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1070 is the winner, though not by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1070 96384 Mpixels/sec
Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 88448 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 7936 (9%)

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 largest amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's 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 ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, 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 are processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. 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 ability to reach the max fill rate.

LOL, 300 watts! BWAHAHAHAHAHAA! GTX 1070 WINS AGAIN!

AMDIsThePrayer says:

WOW, DOUBLE the PERFORMANCE... NVIDIA ALWAYS SUCKS AGAIN!! AHAHAHA!!!

Realist says:

old R290X is Titan Z killer (OFFICIAL),and this not dual GPU like Titan. Fury X is beat Titan V,like both Vega. and where is duoble GPU like,how Titan is,like HD 7990 x2,R9 290X x2,Fury X x2,R9 295X!!!!! Nvidia,YOU HAVE SHIT OF GPUs!!! In gaming,ALWAYS RADEON WIN. Like first,many people dont know this,Nvidia is made exclusively for 3D modeling,not for gaming!!!! BEACUSE HAVE HIGHER SCORE IN SOME BENCHMARKS AND IN GAMING IS TERRIBLE.

Realist says:

This all says:
1.Transistors: nVidia:7200 million
Vega: 12500 million
2.Arhitecture: nVidia: 16nm
Vega: 14nm
3.Bus Type: nVidia: GDDR5
Vega: HMB2 !!!!!!
4.Bus Width nVidia: 256-bit
Vega: 2048-bit WHAT????????????? OMG!!! 256 vs 2048, Grandpa GDDR5 vs The champion of the world HMB2
STUPID nVidia fanboys,look this and AGAIN go check Memory,Core Speed,Memory Speed,Bandwidth,Texel Rate,
Pixel Rate,Unified Shaders,Texture Mapping Units
Look very good and when you become aware that is 1070 crap,go home, snuggle under the bed and cry like a whore
