GeForce GTX 1060 vs Radeon RX 590

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 features a clock speed of 1506 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 2000 MHz. It also uses a 192-bit bus, and makes use of a 16 nm design. It features 1280 SPUs, 80 Texture Address Units, and 48 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 590, which has GPU clock speed of 1469 MHz, and 8192 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 2000 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 2304 SPUs, 144 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum 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 most pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. 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 ability to reach the max fill rate.
