Radeon R7 370 2G vs Radeon RX 470

Intro

The Radeon R7 370 2G makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 975 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1400 MHz on this model. It features 1024 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 470, which features a clock speed of 926 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1650 MHz. It also features a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It is comprised of 2048 SPUs, 128 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core 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 processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
