GeForce GTX 470 vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 470 features a GPU core speed of 607 MHz, and the 1280 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 837 MHz through a 320-bit bus. It also is made up of 448 Stream Processors, 56 TAUs, and 40 ROPs.

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

Radeon RX 560 80 Watts
GeForce GTX 470 215 Watts
Difference: 135 Watts (169%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce GTX 470 is 17% faster than the Radeon RX 560 overall, because of its higher bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce GTX 470 133920 MB/sec
Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
Difference: 19232 (17%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 should be quite a bit (approximately 121%) better at AF than the GeForce GTX 470. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 470 33992 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 41208 (121%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 470 is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 470 24280 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5480 (29%)

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 data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock 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 a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. 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 output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
