GeForce GT 320 vs Radeon RX 550

Intro

The GeForce GT 320 has core speeds of 540 MHz on the GPU, and 790 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 72 SPUs along with 24 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 550, which uses a 14 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1100 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this card. It features 512 SPUs as well as 32 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GT 320 43 Watts
Radeon RX 550 50 Watts
Difference: 7 Watts (16%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon RX 550 should perform quite a bit faster than the GeForce GT 320 in general. (explain)

Radeon RX 550 114688 MB/sec
GeForce GT 320 25280 MB/sec
Difference: 89408 (354%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 550 is quite a bit (approximately 172%) better at AF than the GeForce GT 320. (explain)

Radeon RX 550 35200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 320 12960 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 22240 (172%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon RX 550 is superior to the GeForce GT 320, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon RX 550 17600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 320 4320 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 13280 (307%)

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 maximum amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines 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 is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
