GeForce GTX 1060 3GB vs Radeon RX 5500

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 3GB comes with a core clock frequency of 1506 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 2000 MHz. It also features a 192-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 16 nm design. It features 1152 SPUs, 72 Texture Address Units, and 48 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 5500, which comes with core speeds of 1670 MHz on the GPU, and 14000 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 1408 SPUs as well as 88 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core 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 per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of 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.
