Nvidia Titan X vs Radeon RX 590

Intro

The Nvidia Titan X features a GPU core clock speed of 1417 MHz, and the 12288 MB of GDDR5X memory is set to run at 1251 MHz through a 384-bit bus. It also features 3584 SPUs, 224 Texture Address Units, and 96 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 590, which makes use of a 12 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1469 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 2000 MHz on this model. It features 2304 SPUs as well as 144 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Nvidia Titan X 491520 MB/sec
Radeon RX 590 262144 MB/sec
Difference: 229376 (88%)

Texel Rate

The Nvidia Titan X will be quite a bit (about 50%) more effective at AF than the Radeon RX 590. (explain)

Nvidia Titan X 317408 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 590 211536 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 105872 (50%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Nvidia Titan X is a better choice, by a large margin. (explain)

Nvidia Titan X 136032 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 590 47008 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 89024 (189%)

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 data (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied 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 processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to the 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 card's 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 - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
