GeForce GTX 570 vs Radeon HD 6970

Intro

The GeForce GTX 570 has a core clock frequency of 732 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 950 MHz. It also uses a 320-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 480 SPUs, 60 Texture Address Units, and 40 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 6970, which has GPU core speed of 880 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1375 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 1536 SPUs, 96 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

GeForce GTX 570 152000 MB/sec
Difference: 24000 (16%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 6970 should be much (more or less 92%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 570. (explain)

Radeon HD 6970 84480 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 570 43920 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 40560 (92%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 570 is just a bit (approximately 4%) more effective at AA than the Radeon HD 6970, and also capable of handling higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce GTX 570 29280 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 6970 28160 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1120 (4%)

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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, 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 maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated 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 outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
