Geforce GTX 1080 Ti vs Radeon RX 5500

Intro

The Geforce GTX 1080 Ti makes use of a 16 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1480 MHz. The GDDR5X memory is set to run at a frequency of 1376 MHz on this particular card. It features 3584 SPUs as well as 224 TAUs and 88 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 5500, which comes with GPU clock speed of 1670 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR6 memory set to run at 1750 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1408 SPUs, 88 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Radeon RX 5500 229376 MB/sec
Difference: 266240 (116%)

Texel Rate

The Geforce GTX 1080 Ti should be quite a bit (approximately 126%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon RX 5500. (explain)

Geforce GTX 1080 Ti 331520 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5500 146960 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 184560 (126%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Geforce GTX 1080 Ti is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

Geforce GTX 1080 Ti 130240 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 5500 53440 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 76800 (144%)

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 largest amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of 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 most pixels the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel 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 max fill rate.
