GeForce 8500 GT vs Radeon RX 5600

Intro

The GeForce 8500 GT uses a 80 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 450 MHz. The DDR2 RAM runs at a speed of 400 MHz on this particular model. It features 16 SPUs along with 8 TAUs and 4 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 5600, which comes with a clock speed of 1375 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 1500 MHz. It also uses a 192-bit memory bus, and uses a 7 nm design. It is made up of 2048 SPUs, 128 TAUs, and 64 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, 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 can be processed 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 better this number, the better the 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 number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
