GeForce GTX 1060 vs Geforce GTX 770

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 comes with a GPU core speed of 1506 MHz, and the 6144 MB of GDDR5 RAM runs at 2000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is made up of 1280 Stream Processors, 80 TAUs, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Geforce GTX 770, which features GPU core speed of 1046 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1753 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 1536 Stream Processors, 128 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, 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 are processed per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock 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 processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
