GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs Radeon RX 580

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB features a GPU core clock speed of 1392 MHz, and the 3072 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 1750 MHz through a 96-bit bus. It also is comprised of 768 Stream Processors, 48 Texture Address Units, and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 580, which comes with a core clock frequency of 1257 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 2000 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It features 2304 SPUs, 144 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Radeon RX 580 262144 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 86016 MB/sec
Difference: 176128 (205%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 580 should be much (approximately 171%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB. (explain)

Radeon RX 580 181008 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 66816 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 114192 (171%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 580 is superior to the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB, but only just. (explain)

Radeon RX 580 40224 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 33408 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6816 (20%)

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 max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. 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 lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
