GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs Radeon RX 550

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB has core speeds of 1392 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 3072 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 768 SPUs as well as 48 TAUs and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 550, which has GPU core speed of 1100 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1750 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 512 Stream Processors, 32 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at 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 the video card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
