GeForce GTX 1070 Ti vs GeForce GTX 970

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti uses a 16 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1607 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 2000 MHz on this specific card. It features 2432 SPUs along with 152 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the GeForce GTX 970, which makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1050 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this particular card. It features 1664 SPUs as well as 104 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed 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 the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
