GeForce GTX 295 vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 295 comes with core speeds of 576 MHz on the GPU, and 999 MHz on the 896 MB of GDDR3 memory. It features 240 SPUs as well as 80 TAUs and 28 ROPs.

Compare those specs 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 Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 560 80 Watts
GeForce GTX 295 289 Watts
Difference: 209 Watts (261%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 295 is 95% faster than the Radeon RX 560 in general, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 295 223776 MB/sec
Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
Difference: 109088 (95%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 295 will be quite a bit (about 23%) better at AF than the Radeon RX 560. (explain)

GeForce GTX 295 92160 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 16960 (23%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 295 is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 295 32256 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 13456 (72%)

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.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the 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 texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics 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 maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate 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 outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
