GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 75 Watts
Radeon HD 7850 130 Watts
Difference: 55 Watts (73%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon HD 7850 will be 79% faster than the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB overall, due to its greater data rate. (explain)

Radeon HD 7850 153600 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 86016 MB/sec
Difference: 67584 (79%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB is quite a bit (approximately 21%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 7850. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 66816 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 7850 55040 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 11776 (21%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 33408 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 7850 27520 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5888 (21%)

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 maximum amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many 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.
