GeForce 8500 GT vs Radeon RX 5600

Intro

The GeForce 8500 GT features a GPU clock speed of 450 MHz, and the 512 MB of DDR2 RAM runs at 400 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 16 Stream Processors, 8 TAUs, and 4 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 5600, which uses a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1375 MHz. The GDDR6 memory is set to run at a frequency of 12000 MHz on this model. It features 2048 SPUs as well as 128 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels 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 a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
