GeForce GTX 1650 vs Radeon R9 290X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1650 has a core clock speed of 1485 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 8000 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 12 nm design. It is made up of 896 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon R9 290X, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 800 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1250 MHz on this specific card. It features 2816 SPUs along with 176 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 1650 75 Watts
Radeon R9 290X 300 Watts
Difference: 225 Watts (300%)

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R9 290X should in theory perform much faster than the GeForce GTX 1650 in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 290X 320000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1650 131072 MB/sec
Difference: 188928 (144%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 290X is quite a bit (approximately 69%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 1650. (explain)

Radeon R9 290X 140800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1650 83160 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 57640 (69%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon R9 290X is superior to the GeForce GTX 1650, though only just barely. (explain)

Radeon R9 290X 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 max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
