GeForce RTX 4070 Ti vs Radeon RX Vega 56

Intro

The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti comes with a GPU clock speed of 2310 MHz, and the 12288 MB of GDDR6X memory is set to run at 1313 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also features 7680 Stream Processors, 240 Texture Address Units, and 80 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX Vega 56, which comes with clock speeds of 1156 MHz on the GPU, and 1600 MHz on the 8192 MB of HBM2 memory. It features 3584 SPUs along with 224 Texture Address Units and 64 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This figure 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 graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka 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 reach the maximum fill rate.
