Features Key features of the Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6  vs GeForce GTX TITAN 

memory bandwidth Rate at which data can be read from or stored in onboard memory

Imagination is specifically pitching these parts at manufacturers that want to go with even cheaper/simpler designs, as the bandwidth savings from PVRIC2 would allow them to go with less expensive memory configurations, ideally more than offsetting the higher cost of the design.

pixel rate Number of pixels a graphics card can render to the screen every second

GeForce GTX TITAN
46.8 GPixel/s
Among other things, Imagination has specifically targeted front end and back end performance on Series6XT, nothing that they’ve made changes to improve sustained polygon and pixel fillrate performance.

texture rate Speed at which a graphics card can perform texture mapping

GeForce GTX TITAN
187.3 GTexel/s
Sniper Elite V2 performance is just massive across the board with strong gains and fantastic overall numbers for anyone wanting some serious FPS for solid gameplay.
Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 | by Shawn-Baker (Apr, 2013)

floating point performance How fast the gpu can crunch numbers

GeForce GTX TITAN
4,494 GFLOPS
To hit 400 GFLOPS you'd need to clock the mobile Kepler GPU at roughly 1GHz.
Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 | by Anand-Lal-Shimpi (Jul, 2013)

shading units Subcomponents of the gpu, these run in parallel to enable fast pixel shading

These are the first drivers to support OpenGL 4.3, which among other things means this is the first GeForce driver set to have support for new features such as OpenGL compute shaders, along with full OpenGL ES 3.0 superset functionality.
Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 | by Ryan-Smith (Oct, 2012)

texture mapping units Built into each gpu, these resize and rotate bitmaps for texturing scenes

These parts are further updated and optimized versions of the original G6100, with Imagination noting that they now include a “high-performance texture mapping unit” in order to offer “the same raw [pixel] fillrates as multi-processor GPUs from the previous generation.
