GeForce GTX 1650 vs Radeon RX 550

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1650 features a GPU core speed of 1485 MHz, and the 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM runs at 8000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 896 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 550, which has core speeds of 1100 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 512 SPUs as well as 32 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

GeForce GTX 1650 131072 MB/sec
Radeon RX 550 114688 MB/sec
Difference: 16384 (14%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1650 will be quite a bit (about 136%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon RX 550. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1650 83160 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 550 35200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 47960 (136%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1650 will be quite a bit (about 170%) better at AA than the Radeon RX 550, and should be capable of handling higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1650 47520 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 550 17600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 29920 (170%)

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 max amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core 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 in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
