GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs Radeon RX 580

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB makes use of a 14 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1392 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1750 MHz on this particular model. It features 768 SPUs as well as 48 TAUs and 24 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 580, which uses a 14 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1257 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 2000 MHz on this specific model. It features 2304 SPUs along with 144 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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