GeForce GTX 1070 Ti vs Radeon RX 6600

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti features a clock speed of 1607 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 2000 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 16 nm design. It is comprised of 2432 SPUs, 152 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 6600, which uses a 7 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1626 MHz. The GDDR6 memory runs at a speed of 1750 MHz on this specific card. It features 1792 SPUs along with 112 TAUs and 64 ROPs.

Radeon RX 6600 229376 MB/sec
Difference: 32768 (14%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti should be quite a bit (approximately 34%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon RX 6600. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 244264 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 6600 182112 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 62152 (34%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6600 is a better choice, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

Radeon RX 6600 104064 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 102848 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1216 (1%)

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 maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that 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 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 is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
