GeForce GTX 1650 vs Radeon HD 3870 X2 1GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1650 uses a 12 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1485 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 8000 MHz on this specific card. It features 896 SPUs as well as 56 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the Radeon HD 3870 X2 1GB, which uses a 55 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 825 MHz. The GDDR4 RAM runs at a frequency of 1126 MHz on this particular card. It features 320(64x5) SPUs along with 16 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the Radeon HD 3870 X2 1GB should in theory be a bit superior to the GeForce GTX 1650 overall. (explain)

Radeon HD 3870 X2 1GB 144128 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1650 131072 MB/sec
Difference: 13056 (10%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1650 is quite a bit (about 215%) more effective at AF than the Radeon HD 3870 X2 1GB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1650 83160 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 3870 X2 1GB 26400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 56760 (215%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1650 is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1650 47520 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 3870 X2 1GB 26400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 21120 (80%)

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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It 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 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, 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 most pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
