GeForce GTX 560 vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 560 makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 810 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 1001 MHz on this card. It features 336 SPUs along with 56 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 560, which comes with core speeds of 1175 MHz on the GPU, and 7000 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1024 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 560 80 Watts
GeForce GTX 560 150 Watts
Difference: 70 Watts (88%)

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce GTX 560 should in theory be a little bit faster than the Radeon RX 560 in general. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 128128 MB/sec
Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
Difference: 13440 (12%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 is quite a bit (approximately 66%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 560. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 560 45360 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 29840 (66%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 560 is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 25920 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 7120 (38%)

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 information (in units of MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. 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 quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
