GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs Radeon R9 M265X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB uses a 14 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1392 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a speed of 1750 MHz on this card. It features 768 SPUs as well as 48 TAUs and 24 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 M265X, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 575 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1125 MHz on this specific card. It features 640 SPUs along with 40 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB should be 19% faster than the Radeon R9 M265X overall, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 86016 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M265X 72000 MB/sec
Difference: 14016 (19%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB is much (more or less 191%) faster with regards to texture 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

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB should be quite a bit (approximately 263%) better at anti-aliasing than the Radeon R9 M265X, and also should be able to handle higher resolutions while still performing well. (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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core 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 applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called 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 maximum fill rate.
