GeForce GTX 1070 vs Radeon RX 5500

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 has a GPU core speed of 1506 MHz, and the 8192 MB of GDDR5 RAM is set to run at 2000 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1920 SPUs, 120 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 5500, which features GPU core speed of 1670 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR6 memory running at 1750 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1408 Stream Processors, 88 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the GeForce GTX 1070 should in theory be a small bit better than the Radeon RX 5500 overall. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1070 262144 MB/sec
Radeon RX 5500 229376 MB/sec
Difference: 32768 (14%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1070 is much (approximately 23%) more effective at AF than the Radeon RX 5500. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1070 180720 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5500 146960 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 33760 (23%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1070 is quite a bit (more or less 80%) more effective at AA than the Radeon RX 5500, and also should be capable of handling higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1070 96384 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 5500 53440 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 42944 (80%)

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 maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must 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 anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied 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 number is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
