GeForce GTX 1050 vs Radeon HD 5850

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 uses a 14 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1354 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this particular model. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 5850, which has core speeds of 725 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 1440(288x5) SPUs along with 72 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

In theory, the Radeon HD 5850 will be 12% quicker than the GeForce GTX 1050 in general, because of its higher bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon HD 5850 128000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 114688 MB/sec
Difference: 13312 (12%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 is just a bit (more or less 4%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon HD 5850. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 54160 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5850 52200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 1960 (4%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 is superior to the Radeon HD 5850, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 43328 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 5850 23200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 20128 (87%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, 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 maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
