GeForce GTX 1050 vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 uses a 14 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1354 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 1750 MHz on this specific model. It features 640 SPUs along with 40 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 560, which comes with a GPU core clock speed of 1175 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 7000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 1024 Stream Processors, 64 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 1050 75 Watts
Radeon RX 560 80 Watts
Difference: 5 Watts (7%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have the exact same memory bandwidth, so in theory they should have the same performance. (explain)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 is much (about 39%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 1050. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 54160 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 21040 (39%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 will be quite a bit (more or less 130%) better at FSAA than the Radeon RX 560, and should be able to handle higher resolutions better. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 43328 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 24528 (130%)

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 maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 can be processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher 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 most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends 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 maximum fill rate.
