GeForce GT 1030 vs Radeon RX 5500

Intro

The GeForce GT 1030 comes with core speeds of 1265 MHz on the GPU, and 1502 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 384 SPUs along with 32 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 5500, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1670 MHz. The GDDR6 memory works at a speed of 1750 MHz on this model. It features 1408 SPUs along with 88 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

The Radeon RX 5500 is a lot (approximately 263%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GT 1030. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 146960 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 1030 40480 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 106480 (263%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 5500 is much (more or less 164%) more effective at anti-aliasing than the GeForce GT 1030, and should be able to handle higher screen resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 53440 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 1030 20240 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 33200 (164%)

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 information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed 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 processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines 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 fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
