TMUs: texture mapping units. This unit was a physical processor separated from the main graphics processing units. It is able to distort a bitmap image, and also to resize it, to rotate it and to place it as a texture onto a plane of a specific 3D model.

ROPs: render output units. The other name of this unit is raster operations pipeline. This hadware component is taking pixel and texel information, and processing it through vector and matrix operations. The result will be a depth value or a final pixel. It is able to control antialiasing with the merge of several sample into one pixel.

Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 6500 XT 90.4

The term pixel fillrate is refering to the number of pixels that the video card is able to generate every second. This performance is achieved by multiplying the raster output units (ROPs) by the clock frequency of the graphics processor unit (GPU). Matrix and vector operations allow pixel pipelines to process pixels and texels stored in the buffer. The ROPs will then generate transactions between the buffer and local memory. You should know that the higher the pixel rate, the greater the screen resolution that the GPU can manage.

The term texture fillrate refers to the number of map texture elements (texels) that the GPU is capable of generating per second. This performance is achieved by multiplying the texture mapping units (TMUs) by the clock frequency of the graphics processor unit. To make a 3D scene in a video game or in 3D editing software such as Blender, the graphics card must perform what is called texture mapping with the texture mapping units.

The power in FP16, i.e. in a half-precision floating point format, makes it possible to evaluate the ability of the graphics card to manipulate useful data for example in computer applications, such as deep learning with neural networks. These applications use numeric values that have less precision, and therefore require less memory, compared to values with single or double precision formats.

Single-precision floating-point format, also called FP32, is a computer number format that typically occupies 32 bits in PC memory. This represents a wide dynamic range of numeric values that employs a floating point. FP32 power helps assess the video card's capabilities for generating rendering workloads. Video games use INT32 and FP32 cores to manage calculations with integers and numbers with decimals in order to produce maps, bone matrices on which the vertex shaders will calculate the vertices. Values in single precision format are mainly used in video games and 3D software.

FP64 performance refers to solvers with double precision. We can thus determine how many operations the GPU can calculate for certain specific tasks, such as scientific calculations, climate forecasts, calculations related to fluid dynamics, geophysics, computational chemistry. The FP64 power capabilities are mainly intended for professionals who wish to carry out advanced calculations.
