Geforce GTX 670 vs Radeon RX 5500

Intro

The Geforce GTX 670 comes with a GPU core clock speed of 915 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 1500 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 1344 SPUs, 112 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 5500, which comes with core speeds of 1670 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 1408 SPUs as well as 88 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 5500 150 Watts
Geforce GTX 670 170 Watts
Difference: 20 Watts (13%)

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon RX 5500 should theoretically perform a small bit faster than the Geforce GTX 670 overall. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 229376 MB/sec
Geforce GTX 670 192000 MB/sec
Difference: 37376 (19%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5500 is a lot (more or less 43%) more effective at texture filtering than the Geforce GTX 670. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 146960 Mtexels/sec
Geforce GTX 670 102480 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 44480 (43%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 5500 is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 53440 Mpixels/sec
Geforce GTX 670 29280 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 24160 (83%)

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 largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock 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 per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
