GeForce GTX 870M vs Radeon RX 550

Intro

The GeForce GTX 870M features a GPU core speed of 941 MHz, and the 3072 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 1000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is made up of 1344 SPUs, 112 TAUs, and 24 ROPs.

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

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the 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 texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
