Nvidia Titan X vs Radeon RX Vega 56

Intro

The Nvidia Titan X uses a 16 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1417 MHz. The GDDR5X memory is set to run at a frequency of 1251 MHz on this specific model. It features 3584 SPUs as well as 224 Texture Address Units and 96 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX Vega 56, which comes with GPU core speed of 1156 MHz, and 8192 MB of HBM2 RAM running at 1600 MHz through a 2048-bit bus. It also is comprised of 3584 SPUs, 224 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video 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 could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
