GeForce GTX 1070 vs Radeon RX 480 comparison
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark, the GeForce GTX 1070 GPU is faster than the Radeon RX 480 in gaming.
In our comparison, the GeForce GTX 1070 has a slightly higher core clock speed. The core clock speed (or base speed) is the frequency at which the GPU core runs. This metric makes sense when comparing GPUs of a similar architecture or generation. In addition, the GeForce GTX 1070 also has a slightly higher boost clock speed: the maximum frequency the chip can reach if power delivery and thermals allow.
Next up, in terms of GPU memory, they both have the same amount of memory at 8 GiB. If you're planning at playing games at high resolutions with high-quality textures, you will need a lot of memory.
In addition, both the GeForce GTX 1070 and the Radeon RX 480 have an identical TDP. Heat output doesn't match power consumption directly but, it's a good estimate.
According to the results of the hardwareDB benchmark utility, the GeForce GTX 1070 is faster than the Radeon RX 480.
