GeForce GTX 980 Ti vs Radeon RX 5600 XT

Intro

The GeForce GTX 980 Ti comes with core clock speeds of 1000 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 6144 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 2816 SPUs as well as 176 TAUs and 96 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 5600 XT, which has a core clock frequency of 1375 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 14000 MHz. It also uses a 192-bit bus, and makes use of a 7 nm design. It is made up of 2304 SPUs, 144 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling 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 the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
