GeForce GTX 980 Ti vs Radeon RX 5600 XT

Intro

The GeForce GTX 980 Ti has a clock frequency of 1000 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also features a 384-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 2816 SPUs, 176 TAUs, and 96 ROPs.

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

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 5600 XT 160 Watts
GeForce GTX 980 Ti 250 Watts
Difference: 90 Watts (56%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon RX 5600 XT should be 2% quicker than the GeForce GTX 980 Ti overall, because of its higher bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon RX 5600 XT 344064 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 980 Ti 336000 MB/sec
Difference: 8064 (2%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5600 XT will be a bit (about 13%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 980 Ti. (explain)

Radeon RX 5600 XT 198000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 980 Ti 176000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 22000 (13%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 980 Ti is a better choice, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

GeForce GTX 980 Ti 96000 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 5600 XT 88000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 8000 (9%)

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 data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card 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 Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock 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 lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
