Geforce GTX 760 vs Radeon RX 470

Intro

The Geforce GTX 760 uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 980 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a speed of 1502 MHz on this specific model. It features 1152 SPUs along with 96 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 470, which has a core clock frequency of 926 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1650 MHz. It also features a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It features 2048 SPUs, 128 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of 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 clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
