GeForce GTX 1080 vs GeForce RTX 3060 Ti

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1080 features a GPU core clock speed of 1607 MHz, and the 8192 MB of GDDR5X memory runs at 1251 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 2560 Stream Processors, 160 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, which comes with core speeds of 1410 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 4864 SPUs along with 152 Texture Address Units and 80 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, 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 figure is calculated 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 card will be at handling 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 the video card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.

Proszę o dodanie kart gtx 1660 i 1660 super. Dodana została tylko 1660 ti ale ona ma inne zegary co podane wyżej karty. Chciałbym zrobić konfigurację i porównanie zegarów
