GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm vs Radeon RX 550

Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm comes with a GPU clock speed of 576 MHz, and the 896 MB of GDDR3 memory is set to run at 999 MHz through a 448-bit bus. It also is comprised of 216 Stream Processors, 72 TAUs, and 28 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 550, which has a GPU core clock speed of 1100 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run 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.

Radeon RX 550 114688 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm 111888 MB/sec
Difference: 2800 (3%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm is a little bit (about 18%) better at AF than the Radeon RX 550. (explain)

GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm 41472 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 550 35200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6272 (18%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 550 is a little bit (more or less 9%) faster with regards to AA than the GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm, and also should be capable of handling higher resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon RX 550 17600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm 16128 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1472 (9%)

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 information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
