GeForce GTX 1650 vs Radeon R9 290

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1650 makes use of a 12 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1485 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 8000 MHz on this particular card. It features 896 SPUs as well as 56 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 290, which has a GPU core clock speed of 800 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1250 MHz through a 512-bit bus. It also is comprised of 2560 Stream Processors, 160 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

GeForce GTX 1650 131072 MB/sec
Difference: 188928 (144%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 290 will be a lot (more or less 54%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 1650. (explain)

Radeon R9 290 128000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1650 83160 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 44840 (54%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R9 290 is superior to the GeForce GTX 1650, but it probably won't make a huge difference. (explain)

Radeon R9 290 51200 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 1650 47520 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3680 (8%)

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 data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core 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 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 colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
