GeForce GTX 1070 vs Radeon RX 590

Intro

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

Compare that to the Radeon RX 590, which features a core clock speed of 1469 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 2000 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit bus, and uses a 12 nm design. It is made up of 2304 SPUs, 144 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

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 exactly the same bandwidth, so in theory they should have identical performance. (explain)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 590 is a little bit (approximately 17%) better at texture filtering 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 will be much (about 105%) more effective at AA than the Radeon RX 590, and also capable of handling higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (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 (counted in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, 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 graphics card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called 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 of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
