GeForce RTX 2070 vs Radeon RX 470 4GB

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2070 comes with a GPU core clock speed of 1410 MHz, and the 8192 MB of GDDR6 RAM is set to run at 14 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 2304 SPUs, 144 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 470 4GB, which features a clock speed of 926 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1650 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It features 2048 SPUs, 128 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
