GeForce GTX 960 vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 960 has core clock speeds of 1127 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1024 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 560, which comes with a 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 TAUs, 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

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon RX 560 should perform a small 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 will be just a bit (about 4%) more effective 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 high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 960 is superior to the Radeon RX 560, by a large margin. (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 largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per 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 the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
