GeForce GTX 1080 vs Radeon RX 5600 XT

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1080 has a core clock frequency of 1607 MHz and a GDDR5X memory speed of 1251 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit bus, and uses a 16 nm design. It is comprised of 2560 SPUs, 160 TAUs, and 64 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 5600 XT, which comes with GPU core speed of 1375 MHz, and 6144 MB of GDDR6 memory set to run at 14000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also features 2304 SPUs, 144 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 5600 XT 160 Watts
GeForce GTX 1080 180 Watts
Difference: 20 Watts (13%)

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the Radeon RX 5600 XT should theoretically be just a bit superior to the GeForce GTX 1080 overall. (explain)

Radeon RX 5600 XT 344064 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1080 327680 MB/sec
Difference: 16384 (5%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1080 will be quite a bit (approximately 30%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon RX 5600 XT. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1080 257120 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5600 XT 198000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 59120 (30%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1080 is the winner, though not by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1080 102848 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 5600 XT 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: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card 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 the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
