GeForce GTX 1070 vs Radeon RX 6600

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 comes with core clock speeds of 1506 MHz on the GPU, and 2000 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1920 SPUs as well as 120 Texture Address Units and 64 ROPs.

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

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If 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 are applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card 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 processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
