GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs Radeon R9 M265X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB has a clock frequency of 1392 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also makes use of a 96-bit bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It is comprised of 768 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 24 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 M265X, which has GPU core speed of 575 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1125 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 640 Stream Processors, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Radeon R9 M265X 72000 MB/sec
Difference: 14016 (19%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB will be much (more or less 191%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R9 M265X. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 66816 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M265X 23000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 43816 (191%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 33408 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M265X 9200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 24208 (263%)

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 data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster 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 are applied in one 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 better the texel rate, the better the 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 amount of pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's 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 - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
