Geforce GTX 1080 Ti vs Radeon R9 Fury X

Intro

The Geforce GTX 1080 Ti makes use of a 16 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 1480 MHz. The GDDR5X RAM runs at a frequency of 1376 MHz on this particular card. It features 3584 SPUs as well as 224 Texture Address Units and 88 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 Fury X, which has GPU clock speed of 1050 MHz, and 4096 MB of HBM RAM set to run at 500 MHz through a 4096-bit bus. It also is made up of 4096 SPUs, 256 TAUs, and 64 ROPs.

Geforce GTX 1080 Ti 495616 MB/sec
Difference: 16384 (3%)

Texel Rate

The Geforce GTX 1080 Ti should be a lot (more or less 23%) better at AF than the Radeon R9 Fury X. (explain)

Geforce GTX 1080 Ti 331520 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 Fury X 268800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 62720 (23%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Geforce GTX 1080 Ti is the winner, by far. (explain)

Geforce GTX 1080 Ti 130240 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 Fury X 67200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 63040 (94%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip 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 Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. 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 - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
