GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs Radeon RX 550

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB makes use of a 14 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1392 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 1750 MHz on this model. It features 768 SPUs along with 48 TAUs and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 550, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1100 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 1750 MHz on this particular model. It features 512 SPUs along with 32 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics 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 amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as 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, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
