GeForce GTX 1070 vs Radeon RX 6600

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 has a GPU clock speed of 1506 MHz, and the 8192 MB of GDDR5 RAM is set to run at 2000 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 1920 SPUs, 120 TAUs, and 64 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 6600, which has a core clock speed of 1626 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 1750 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 7 nm design. It is comprised of 1792 SPUs, 112 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6600 should be a bit (more or less 1%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 1070. (explain)

Radeon RX 6600 182112 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1070 180720 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 1392 (1%)

Pixel Rate

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

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher 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 most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its 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 card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
