GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs Radeon RX 580

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB has a GPU 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 features 768 Stream Processors, 48 Texture Address Units, and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 580, which features a clock frequency of 1257 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 2000 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It features 2304 SPUs, 144 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 75 Watts
Radeon RX 580 185 Watts
Difference: 110 Watts (147%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon RX 580 is 205% faster than the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB overall, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 580 should be quite a bit (about 171%) faster with regards to anisotropic 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 using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 580 is the winner, though not by far. (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 largest amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is calculated 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 processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
