GeForce GTX 950M vs Radeon RX 5700

Intro

The GeForce GTX 950M has a GPU core clock speed of 914 MHz, and the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM runs at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 5700, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1465 MHz. The GDDR6 memory runs at a frequency of 14000 MHz on this particular model. It features 2304 SPUs as well as 144 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

GeForce GTX 950M 32000 MB/sec
Difference: 426752 (1334%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5700 is a lot (more or less 477%) better at AF than the GeForce GTX 950M. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 210960 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 950M 36560 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 174400 (477%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon RX 5700 is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If 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 are applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
