GeForce GTX 1060 vs Geforce GTX 670

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 has a core clock frequency of 1506 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 2000 MHz. It also uses a 192-bit bus, and makes use of a 16 nm design. It is made up of 1280 SPUs, 80 Texture Address Units, and 48 ROPs.

Compare that to the Geforce GTX 670, which features clock speeds of 915 MHz on the GPU, and 1500 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 1344 SPUs as well as 112 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the 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 can be applied in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum 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.
