Geforce GTX 690 vs Radeon RX 5500

Intro

The Geforce GTX 690 makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 915 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 1502 MHz on this particular model. It features 1536 SPUs as well as 128 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 5500, which has a core clock speed of 1670 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 14000 MHz. It also features a 128-bit bus, and uses a 7 nm design. It is made up of 1408 SPUs, 88 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 5500 150 Watts
Geforce GTX 690 300 Watts
Difference: 150 Watts (100%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Geforce GTX 690 should be a lot faster than the Radeon RX 5500 in general. (explain)

Geforce GTX 690 384512 MB/sec
Radeon RX 5500 229376 MB/sec
Difference: 155136 (68%)

Texel Rate

The Geforce GTX 690 should be quite a bit (more or less 59%) better at AF than the Radeon RX 5500. (explain)

Geforce GTX 690 234240 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5500 146960 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 87280 (59%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Geforce GTX 690 is the winner, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

Geforce GTX 690 58560 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 5500 53440 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5120 (10%)

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.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly record to its 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 - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output 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 get to the maximum fill rate.
