GeForce GTX 1060 vs Radeon RX 5500 XT

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 has a GPU clock speed of 1506 MHz, and the 6144 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 2000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1280 SPUs, 80 TAUs, and 48 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 5500 XT, which uses a 7 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1717 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM runs at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this particular model. It features 1408 SPUs along with 88 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

GeForce GTX 1060 196608 MB/sec
Difference: 32768 (17%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5500 XT will be quite a bit (approximately 25%) better at AF than the GeForce GTX 1060. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 XT 151096 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1060 120480 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 30616 (25%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1060 is a better choice, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1060 72288 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 5500 XT 54944 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 17344 (32%)

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 (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better 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 texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated 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 drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on many 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.
