GeForce GTX 1070 vs Radeon RX 5500 XT

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 comes with a GPU core clock speed of 1506 MHz, and the 8192 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 2000 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 1920 SPUs, 120 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 5500 XT, which features a clock frequency of 1717 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 1750 MHz. It also features a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 7 nm design. It features 1408 SPUs, 88 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

GeForce GTX 1070 262144 MB/sec
Radeon RX 5500 XT 229376 MB/sec
Difference: 32768 (14%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1070 will be just a bit (approximately 20%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon RX 5500 XT. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1070 180720 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5500 XT 151096 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 29624 (20%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1070 is a lot (more or less 75%) more effective at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon RX 5500 XT, and should be capable of handling higher resolutions more effectively. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1070 96384 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 5500 XT 54944 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 41440 (75%)

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 max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range 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 amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
