GeForce GTX 950 vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 950 makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1024 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a speed of 1652 MHz on this model. It features 768 SPUs along with 48 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 560, which uses a 14 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1175 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 7000 MHz on this specific card. It features 1024 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 560 80 Watts
GeForce GTX 950 90 Watts
Difference: 10 Watts (13%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon RX 560 will be 8% faster than the GeForce GTX 950 in general, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 950 105728 MB/sec
Difference: 8960 (8%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 should be quite a bit (approximately 53%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 950. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 950 49152 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 26048 (53%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 950 is much (approximately 74%) faster with regards to FSAA than the Radeon RX 560, and will be able to handle higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

GeForce GTX 950 32768 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 13968 (74%)

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 information (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units 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 per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
