VS

GeForce GTX 1070 Ti vs Radeon RX 6800

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti has core clock speeds of 1607 MHz on the GPU, and 2000 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 2432 SPUs along with 152 Texture Address Units and 64 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 6800, which has a core clock frequency of 1700 MHz and a GDDR6 memory speed of 2000 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit bus, and uses a 7 nm design. It is made up of 3840 SPUs, 240 TAUs, and 96 Raster Operation Units.

GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 262144 MB/sec
Difference: 262144 (100%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6800 will be quite a bit (approximately 67%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 408000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 244264 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 163736 (67%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6800 is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 163200 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 102848 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 60352 (59%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called 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 of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
