Geforce GTX 1080 Ti vs Radeon RX 550

Intro

The Geforce GTX 1080 Ti uses a 16 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1480 MHz. The GDDR5X memory works at a frequency of 1376 MHz on this specific card. It features 3584 SPUs along with 224 TAUs and 88 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 550, which comes with GPU core speed of 1100 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1750 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 512 SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
