GeForce GTX 1660 Ti vs Radeon RX 590

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti has a GPU clock speed of 1500 MHz, and the 6144 MB of GDDR6 memory runs at 12000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also features 1536 Stream Processors, 96 TAUs, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 590, which makes use of a 12 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1469 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 2000 MHz on this particular model. It features 2304 SPUs as well as 144 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out 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 rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
