GeForce GTX 1660 Ti vs Radeon RX 480

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti comes with a clock frequency of 1500 MHz and a GDDR6 memory speed of 12000 MHz. It also uses a 192-bit bus, and makes use of a 12 nm design. It is made up of 1536 SPUs, 96 TAUs, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 480, which uses a 14 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1120 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 2000 MHz on this particular model. It features 2304 SPUs along with 144 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics 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 chip could possibly write to the local memory in one 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 fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
