VS

GeForce RTX 3070 Ti vs Radeon R9 Nano

Intro

The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti features core clock speeds of 1575 MHz on the GPU, and 1188 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR6X RAM. It features 6144 SPUs as well as 192 TAUs and 96 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the Radeon R9 Nano, which has GPU core speed of 1000 MHz, and 4096 MB of HBM memory running at 500 MHz through a 4096-bit bus. It also is made up of 4096 SPUs, 256 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Radeon R9 Nano 512000 MB/sec
Difference: 110899 (22%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti will be a small bit (more or less 18%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon R9 Nano. (explain)

GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 302400 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 Nano 256000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 46400 (18%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti should be quite a bit (more or less 136%) faster with regards to anti-aliasing than the Radeon R9 Nano, and able to handle higher resolutions more effectively. (explain)

GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 151200 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 Nano 64000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 87200 (136%)

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 information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory 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 better the bandwidth is, 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 can be processed per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card could 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 Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as 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 - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
