GeForce RTX 3070 Ti vs Radeon R9 Fury X

Intro

The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti makes use of a 8 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1575 MHz. The GDDR6X memory is set to run at a frequency of 1188 MHz on this model. It features 6144 SPUs along with 192 TAUs and 96 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 Fury X, which has a core clock frequency of 1050 MHz and a HBM memory frequency of 500 MHz. It also makes use of a 4096-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It features 4096 SPUs, 256 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Radeon R9 Fury X 275 Watts
GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 290 Watts
Difference: 15 Watts (5%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is 22% faster than the Radeon R9 Fury X overall, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 622899 MB/sec
Radeon R9 Fury X 512000 MB/sec
Difference: 110899 (22%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is a little bit (approximately 13%) more effective at AF than the Radeon R9 Fury X. (explain)

GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 302400 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 Fury X 268800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 33600 (13%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 151200 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 Fury X 67200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 84000 (125%)

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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
