GeForce GTX 1050 Ti vs Radeon HD 5550

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti uses a 14 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1290 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this model. It features 768 SPUs along with 48 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 5550, which uses a 40 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 550 MHz. The DDR2 RAM runs at a frequency of 400 MHz on this specific card. It features 320(64x5) SPUs as well as 16 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti should theoretically be quite a bit superior to the Radeon HD 5550 in general. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 114688 MB/sec
Radeon HD 5550 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 101888 (796%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti will be quite a bit (approximately 604%) more effective at AF than the Radeon HD 5550. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 61920 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5550 8800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 53120 (604%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti should be quite a bit (more or less 838%) faster with regards to anti-aliasing than the Radeon HD 5550, and also capable of handling higher screen resolutions better. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 41280 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 5550 4400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 36880 (838%)

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 information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
