GeForce GTX 1070 Ti vs GeForce GTX 970

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti comes with clock speeds of 1607 MHz on the GPU, and 2000 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 2432 SPUs as well as 152 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 970, which uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 1050 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this specific model. It features 1664 SPUs as well as 104 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock 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 applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
