GeForce GTX 1050 Ti vs Radeon RX 550

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti uses a 14 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 1290 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 1750 MHz on this specific model. It features 768 SPUs along with 48 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 550, which features a core clock frequency of 1100 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It features 512 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 550 50 Watts
GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 75 Watts
Difference: 25 Watts (50%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have the exact same memory bandwidth, so theoretically they should perform exactly the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is a lot (about 76%) more effective at AF than the Radeon RX 550. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 61920 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 550 35200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 26720 (76%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti should be a lot (about 135%) better at FSAA than the Radeon RX 550, and also should be able to handle higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 41280 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 550 17600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 23680 (135%)

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 (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If 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, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated 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 output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
