GeForce GTX 550 Ti vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 550 Ti makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 900 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a speed of 1026 MHz on this particular card. It features 192 SPUs along with 32 TAUs and 24 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 560, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1175 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 7000 MHz on this model. It features 1024 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 560 80 Watts
GeForce GTX 550 Ti 116 Watts
Difference: 36 Watts (45%)

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the Radeon RX 560 should in theory be a bit better than the GeForce GTX 550 Ti overall. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 550 Ti 98496 MB/sec
Difference: 16192 (16%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 should be quite a bit (about 161%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 550 Ti. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 550 Ti 28800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 46400 (161%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 550 Ti is the winner, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

GeForce GTX 550 Ti 21600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2800 (15%)

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 (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, the result should 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 anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
