GeForce GTX 1070 vs Radeon RX 5500

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 has clock speeds of 1506 MHz on the GPU, and 2000 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1920 SPUs as well as 120 TAUs and 64 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 5500, which uses a 7 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1670 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM runs at a speed of 14000 MHz on this specific model. It features 1408 SPUs as well as 88 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce GTX 1070, in theory, should perform just a bit faster than the Radeon RX 5500 in general. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1070 is quite a bit (about 23%) faster with regards to 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 will be a lot (approximately 80%) more effective at FSAA than the Radeon RX 5500, and also will be able to handle higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (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 max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called 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 of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
