GeForce GTX 1660 Ti vs Radeon HD 7990

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti makes use of a 12 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 1500 MHz. The GDDR6 memory works at a speed of 12000 MHz on this particular model. It features 1536 SPUs along with 96 TAUs and 48 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 7990, which features core clock speeds of 950 MHz on the GPU, and 1500 MHz on the 3072 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 2048 SPUs as well as 128 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 120 Watts
Radeon HD 7990 375 Watts
Difference: 255 Watts (213%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon HD 7990 should be 95% faster than the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti in general, due to its higher data rate. (explain)

Radeon HD 7990 576000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 294912 MB/sec
Difference: 281088 (95%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 7990 should be a lot (about 69%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti. (explain)

Radeon HD 7990 243200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 144000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 99200 (69%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti will be a little bit (about 18%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon HD 7990, and also able to handle higher resolutions more effectively. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 72000 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 7990 60800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 11200 (18%)

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.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better 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 are applied in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, 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 most pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
