GeForce GTX 1070 vs Radeon RX 590

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 makes use of a 16 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1506 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a speed of 2000 MHz on this model. It features 1920 SPUs along with 120 Texture Address Units and 64 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 590, which has clock speeds of 1469 MHz on the GPU, and 2000 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 2304 SPUs along with 144 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 1070 150 Watts
Radeon RX 590 175 Watts
Difference: 25 Watts (17%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have the exact same memory bandwidth, so theoretically they should perform the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 590 is just a bit (more or less 17%) better at AF than the GeForce GTX 1070. (explain)

Radeon RX 590 211536 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1070 180720 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 30816 (17%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1070 should be a lot (approximately 105%) more effective at FSAA than the Radeon RX 590, and should be able to handle higher resolutions more effectively. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1070 96384 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 590 47008 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 49376 (105%)

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 max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the 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 can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
