GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs Radeon RX Vega 56

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB comes with a GPU core speed of 1392 MHz, and the 3072 MB of GDDR5 RAM is set to run at 1750 MHz through a 96-bit bus. It also is made up of 768 SPUs, 48 Texture Address Units, and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX Vega 56, which comes with GPU clock speed of 1156 MHz, and 8192 MB of HBM2 memory set to run at 1600 MHz through a 2048-bit bus. It also features 3584 Stream Processors, 224 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the 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 in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
