GeForce GTX 970M vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 970M features a GPU clock speed of 924 MHz, and the 3072 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 1000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also features 1280 Stream Processors, 80 TAUs, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 560, which uses a 14 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1175 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 7000 MHz on this specific model. It features 1024 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
