GeForce GTX 1080 vs Radeon RX 5600

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1080 comes with a clock frequency of 1607 MHz and a GDDR5X memory frequency of 1251 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 16 nm design. It is comprised of 2560 SPUs, 160 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 5600, which comes with core speeds of 1375 MHz on the GPU, and 12000 MHz on the 6144 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 2048 SPUs as well as 128 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 5600 150 Watts
GeForce GTX 1080 180 Watts
Difference: 30 Watts (20%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce GTX 1080 should be a bit faster than the Radeon RX 5600 in general. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1080 327680 MB/sec
Radeon RX 5600 294912 MB/sec
Difference: 32768 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1080 should be a lot (about 46%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon RX 5600. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1080 257120 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5600 176000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 81120 (46%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1080 is superior to the Radeon RX 5600, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1080 102848 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 5600 88000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 14848 (17%)

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 maximum amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. 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 lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
