GeForce GTX 1070 vs Radeon Vega Frontier Edition


The GeForce GTX 1070 comes with 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 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1382 MHz. The HBM2 memory is set to run at a speed of 1890 MHz on this particular model. It features 4096 SPUs along with 256 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

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

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition should be 89% faster than the GeForce GTX 1070 in general, because of its greater data rate. (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 quite a bit (about 96%) faster with regards to 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

The GeForce GTX 1070 should be a bit (approximately 9%) faster with regards to anti-aliasing than the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, and should be able to handle higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (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 max amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the faster 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 applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines 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 output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
