GeForce GTX 1070 vs Radeon RX 590

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 comes with a core clock frequency of 1506 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 2000 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 16 nm design. It features 1920 SPUs, 120 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 590, which features core speeds of 1469 MHz on the GPU, and 2000 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 2304 SPUs as well as 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 bandwidth, so in theory they should have identical performance. (explain)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 590 is a bit (approximately 17%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 1070. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1070 is the winner, by a large margin. (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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock 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 in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
