Geforce GTX 680 vs Radeon RX 5500

Intro

The Geforce GTX 680 has core clock speeds of 1006 MHz on the GPU, and 1502 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 1536 SPUs along with 128 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 5500, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1670 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM works at a frequency of 14000 MHz on this particular model. It features 1408 SPUs as well as 88 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Geforce GTX 680 192256 MB/sec
Difference: 37120 (19%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5500 should be a small bit (more or less 14%) better at texture filtering than the Geforce GTX 680. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 146960 Mtexels/sec
Geforce GTX 680 128768 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 18192 (14%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 5500 is quite a bit (approximately 66%) more effective at FSAA than the Geforce GTX 680, and also should be able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 53440 Mpixels/sec
Geforce GTX 680 32192 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 21248 (66%)

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 maximum amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as 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 - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
