Nvidia Titan X vs Radeon Vega Frontier Edition

Intro

The Nvidia Titan X comes with core clock speeds of 1417 MHz on the GPU, and 1251 MHz on the 12288 MB of GDDR5X memory. It features 3584 SPUs as well as 224 TAUs and 96 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, which has a clock speed of 1382 MHz and a HBM2 memory speed of 1890 MHz. It also features a 2048-bit memory bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It is made up of 4096 SPUs, 256 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics 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 chip can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
