GPU clockspeed - isnit different between Nvidia and AMD?

In other words, is the 1405 clock on my 580 the same as 1405 on a Nvidia card? I see a 1660 Super from MSI that indicates it's clock is 1830. That's a 24% difference. So is the 1660 Super really 24% faster than the 580 that I have?

Not exactly, the 1660 Ti won't be about 11% slower than the 5700XT in use.

"only" has a boost of 1545, but is faster than the 5700XT in every game, as it as more stuff in it.

Short answer no they are not the same it's only a measure of how many cycles that architecture can run within a given time frame.

What architecture and what core size is being run matter more then operating frequencies.

Thanks...I was looking at a used Asus 1070 to upgrade from current XFX RX 580. This one specifically - https://www.asus.com/us/Graphics-Cards/ROG-STRIX-GTX1070-O8G-GAMING/

I'm trying to figure out how much of an improvement and whether I can push this card to 100fps at 1440p.

Frame rates would depend on the title and settings.

Although hou may want to check out the newer 1660 Super its often cheaper for similar performance.

Do you mean that the 1660 is similar to the old 1070?

I play world of tanks and my boys play Apex and Fortnite.

Would a 1070 or 1660 push a 1440 display to 100hz using high settings for the games noted above?

That's pushing more into 2060/RX 5700/2060 Super territory to hit requirements like that for Fortnite and Apex.

But either the 1070 or 1660 Super would be fine for more along the lines of medium settings at 1440p.

Once you start looking at 1440p@100fps+ your looking at needing similar performance to what a 4k@60hz monitor takes at those settings graphics wise.

Yeah, explains why I'm looking at a 2070 xc ultra. Friend of mine has a new one he's willing to sell me for less than $400... I think I'm willing to stretch for a card that should serve me well for several years since I don't play a lot of AAA games.
