GeForce GTX 1070 vs Geforce GTX 780

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 features a clock speed of 1506 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 2000 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 16 nm design. It is made up of 1920 SPUs, 120 TAUs, and 64 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Geforce GTX 780, which features a clock frequency of 863 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1502 MHz. It also makes use of a 384-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 2304 SPUs, 192 Texture Address Units, and 48 ROPs.

GeForce GTX 1070 262144 MB/sec
Difference: 26240 (10%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1070 will be a bit (more or less 9%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Geforce GTX 780. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1070 180720 Mtexels/sec
Geforce GTX 780 165696 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 15024 (9%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1070 is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1070 96384 Mpixels/sec
Geforce GTX 780 41424 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 54960 (133%)

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 data (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video 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 most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs 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 output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
