Geforce GTX 670 vs Radeon RX 5500

Intro

The Geforce GTX 670 makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 915 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a speed of 1500 MHz on this particular card. It features 1344 SPUs along with 112 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 5500, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1670 MHz. The GDDR6 memory runs at a speed of 1750 MHz on this model. It features 1408 SPUs as well as 88 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum 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 higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
