GeForce GTX Titan vs Radeon RX 590

Intro

The GeForce GTX Titan comes with a core clock frequency of 837 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1502 MHz. It also makes use of a 384-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 2688 SPUs, 224 TAUs, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 590, which uses a 12 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1469 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 2000 MHz on this model. It features 2304 SPUs as well as 144 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 590 175 Watts
GeForce GTX Titan 250 Watts
Difference: 75 Watts (43%)

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce GTX Titan, in theory, should be a little bit faster than the Radeon RX 590 overall. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 590 should be a small bit (more or less 13%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX Titan. (explain)

Radeon RX 590 211536 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX Titan 187488 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 24048 (13%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon RX 590 is the winner, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

Radeon RX 590 47008 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX Titan 40176 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6832 (17%)

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 largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. 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 rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
