GeForce GTX 1050 vs Radeon RX 550

Intro

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

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 550, which comes with GPU core speed of 1100 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1750 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 512 Stream Processors, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have exactly the same bandwidth, so in theory they should have the same performance. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 should be quite a bit (about 54%) more effective at AF than the Radeon RX 550. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 54160 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 550 35200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 18960 (54%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 should be a lot (about 146%) more effective at AA than the Radeon RX 550, and also able to handle higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 43328 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 550 17600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 25728 (146%)

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 maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen 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 number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, 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 can possibly write 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 clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
