GeForce GTX 1050 vs Radeon HD 5850

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 has a GPU clock speed of 1354 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM runs at 1750 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 640 Stream Processors, 40 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 5850, which comes with GPU clock speed of 725 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1000 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 1440(288x5) SPUs, 72 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 should be a small bit (approximately 4%) more effective at AF than the Radeon HD 5850. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 will be a lot (about 87%) faster with regards to anti-aliasing than the Radeon HD 5850, and able to handle higher resolutions more effectively. (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: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
