GeForce GTX 980 Ti vs Radeon RX 5600 XT

Intro

The GeForce GTX 980 Ti features core clock speeds of 1000 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 6144 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 2816 SPUs along with 176 Texture Address Units and 96 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 5600 XT, which comes with a clock speed of 1375 MHz and a GDDR6 memory speed of 14000 MHz. It also makes use of a 192-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 7 nm design. It is comprised of 2304 SPUs, 144 TAUs, and 64 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock 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 in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
