Radeon RX 550 114688 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 86016 MB/sec
Difference: 28672 (33%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB will be much (approximately 90%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon RX 550. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 66816 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 550 35200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 31616 (90%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB is a lot (more or less 90%) more effective at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon RX 550, and also should be able to handle higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 33408 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 550 17600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 15808 (90%)

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 data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics 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 most pixels that the graphics chip 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 Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
