GeForce GTX 960 vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 960 has a core clock frequency of 1127 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 1024 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 560, which features a core clock frequency of 1175 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 7000 MHz. It also features a 128-bit bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It features 1024 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 560 80 Watts
GeForce GTX 960 120 Watts
Difference: 40 Watts (50%)

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon RX 560, in theory, should perform a bit faster than the GeForce GTX 960 overall. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 960 112000 MB/sec
Difference: 2688 (2%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 should be just a bit (approximately 4%) better at AF than the GeForce GTX 960. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 960 72128 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 3072 (4%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 960 is superior to the Radeon RX 560, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 960 36064 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 17264 (92%)

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.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at 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 graphics card could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
