GeForce GTX 1070 Ti vs Radeon RX 480 4GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti comes with a GPU core speed of 1607 MHz, and the 8192 MB of GDDR5 RAM is set to run at 2000 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 2432 SPUs, 152 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 480 4GB, which has a core clock speed of 1120 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1750 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It features 2304 SPUs, 144 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
