GeForce GTX 560 Ti vs Radeon RX 550

Intro

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 822 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 1002 MHz on this card. It features 384 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 550, which uses a 14 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1100 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this particular model. It features 512 SPUs as well as 32 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

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