GeForce GTX 870M vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 870M comes with a core clock frequency of 941 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1000 MHz. It also uses a 192-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 1344 SPUs, 112 Texture Address Units, and 24 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 560, which features core clock speeds of 1175 MHz on the GPU, and 7000 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 1024 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core 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 in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output 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 get to the maximum fill rate.
