GeForce GT 1030 vs Radeon RX 550


Intro

The GeForce GT 1030 makes use of a 16 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1265 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 1502 MHz on this particular card. It features 384 SPUs as well as 32 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 550, which comes with a GPU core clock speed of 1100 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1750 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 512 Stream Processors, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Radeon RX 550 35200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 5280 (15%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GT 1030 will be just a bit (more or less 15%) better at FSAA than the Radeon RX 550, and able to handle higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

GeForce GT 1030 20240 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 550 17600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2640 (15%)

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 max amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better 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 per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, 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 card could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.

Hello, i need to know if this graphics card MSI Radeon RX 550 2GB Aero ITX OC supports HDCP 2.2 and play at resolution 3840x2160 60hz and if these cards also MSI Radeon RX 460 2GB OC or MSI GeForce GT 1030 2GB or other and you reccomend me to choose for connecting on 4K UHDTV hdr HDMI v 2.0b HDCP 2.2 compatible mainly for watching movies with mpc-hc in an old pc desktop psu 450 watt, proccessor amd athlon II x4 640 , 4gb ram , i am not interest for games and must have the above i mentioned. Thanks in advance
