GeForce GTX 1070 Ti vs Radeon RX 590

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti makes use of a 16 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1607 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a frequency of 2000 MHz on this specific model. It features 2432 SPUs along with 152 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 590, which uses a 12 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1469 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 2000 MHz on this particular card. It features 2304 SPUs as well as 144 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

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 theoretically they should have identical performance. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti is a little bit (approximately 15%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon RX 590. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti will be a lot (about 119%) better at anti-aliasing than the Radeon RX 590, and also able to handle higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (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: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to the 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 the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
