GeForce GTX 1060 vs Geforce GTX 670

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 comes with a clock speed of 1506 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 2000 MHz. It also makes use of a 192-bit bus, and uses a 16 nm design. It is made up of 1280 SPUs, 80 TAUs, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Geforce GTX 670, which uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 915 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 1500 MHz on this specific model. It features 1344 SPUs as well as 112 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR memory, it must 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 can be applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card 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 maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of 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.

Is it worth getting a GTX-1060 ,over my GTX-670 SLI.I game at 1920 x 1080. I think they would be close on most games ,I liked to go to one card. I am sure the 670 SLI would be faster on a lot of games.But the GTX 1060 has a good price and it is pretty fast.
