GeForce GTX 1070 Ti vs Radeon RX 590

Intro

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

Compare that to the Radeon RX 590, which makes use of a 12 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1469 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 2000 MHz on this particular card. It features 2304 SPUs as well as 144 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 590 175 Watts
GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 180 Watts
Difference: 5 Watts (3%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have exactly the same bandwidth, so in theory they should perform exactly the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti should be a bit (about 15%) more effective at AF than the Radeon RX 590. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 244264 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 590 211536 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 32728 (15%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti is a better choice, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 102848 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 590 47008 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 55840 (119%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units 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 in one second.

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