GeForce RTX 3070 vs GeForce RTX 3080

Intro

The GeForce RTX 3070 makes use of a 8 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 1500 MHz. The GDDR6 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this specific card. It features 5888 SPUs along with 184 TAUs and 96 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the GeForce RTX 3080, which comes with core speeds of 1440 MHz on the GPU, and 1188 MHz on the 10240 MB of GDDR6X RAM. It features 8704 SPUs along with 272 TAUs and 96 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
