GeForce GTX 1050 vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 features a clock speed of 1354 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1750 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It features 640 SPUs, 40 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 560, which comes with a clock frequency of 1175 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 7000 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It features 1024 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, 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 exactly the same bandwidth, so theoretically they should perform the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 will be much (approximately 39%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GTX 1050. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 is the winner, and very much so. (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 largest amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics 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 colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
