Geforce GTX 780 vs Radeon RX 590

Intro

The Geforce GTX 780 uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 863 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a speed of 1502 MHz on this particular card. It features 2304 SPUs as well as 192 TAUs and 48 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 590, which comes with core speeds of 1469 MHz on the GPU, and 2000 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 2304 SPUs along with 144 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 590 175 Watts
Geforce GTX 780 250 Watts
Difference: 75 Watts (43%)

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the Geforce GTX 780 should in theory be a small bit superior to the Radeon RX 590 in general. (explain)

Geforce GTX 780 288384 MB/sec
Radeon RX 590 262144 MB/sec
Difference: 26240 (10%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 590 should be much (approximately 28%) more effective at texture filtering than the Geforce GTX 780. (explain)

Radeon RX 590 211536 Mtexels/sec
Geforce GTX 780 165696 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 45840 (28%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 590 is a better choice, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

Radeon RX 590 47008 Mpixels/sec
Geforce GTX 780 41424 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5584 (13%)

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 past the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
