GeForce GTX 1070 vs Radeon RX 5500

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 makes use of a 16 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 1506 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 2000 MHz on this specific card. It features 1920 SPUs along with 120 Texture Address Units and 64 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 running at 14000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1408 SPUs, 88 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Radeon RX 5500 229376 MB/sec
Difference: 32768 (14%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1070 will be much (approximately 23%) better at anisotropic filtering 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 (about 80%) better at FSAA than the Radeon RX 5500, and capable of handling higher screen resolutions better. (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: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number 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 higher this number, the better the video card will be at 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 could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core 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 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 reach the max fill rate.
