GeForce GTX 550 Ti vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 550 Ti has a core clock speed of 900 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1026 MHz. It also uses a 192-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 192 SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 24 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 560, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1175 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 7000 MHz on this card. It features 1024 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units 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

In theory, the Radeon RX 560 is 16% quicker than the GeForce GTX 550 Ti overall, because of its higher data rate. (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%) faster with regards to AF 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

The GeForce GTX 550 Ti should be a little bit (about 15%) better at AA than the Radeon RX 560, and also should be capable of handling higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied 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 card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
