GeForce GTX 980 Ti vs Radeon RX 6700 XT

Intro

The GeForce GTX 980 Ti features a GPU clock speed of 1000 MHz, and the 6144 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 1750 MHz through a 384-bit bus. It also is comprised of 2816 Stream Processors, 176 Texture Address Units, and 96 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 6700 XT, which uses a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 2321 MHz. The GDDR6 memory runs at a frequency of 2000 MHz on this particular model. It features 2560 SPUs as well as 160 Texture Address Units and 64 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better 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 processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video 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 chip can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
