GeForce 8500 GT vs Radeon RX 5600

Intro

The GeForce 8500 GT uses a 80 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 450 MHz. The DDR2 memory is set to run at a frequency of 400 MHz on this model. It features 16 SPUs as well as 8 Texture Address Units and 4 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 5600, which uses a 7 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1375 MHz. The GDDR6 memory is set to run at a speed of 12000 MHz on this specific model. It features 2048 SPUs as well as 128 TAUs and 64 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's 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 number is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock 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 processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
