GeForce GTX 1080 vs GeForce GTX Titan Black

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1080 uses a 16 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1607 MHz. The GDDR5X memory is set to run at a frequency of 1251 MHz on this model. It features 2560 SPUs as well as 160 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the GeForce GTX Titan Black, which uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 889 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 1750 MHz on this specific model. It features 2880 SPUs as well as 240 TAUs and 48 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
