Geforce GTX 670 vs Radeon RX 5500 XT

Intro

The Geforce GTX 670 features a clock frequency of 915 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1500 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 1344 SPUs, 112 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 5500 XT, which features a GPU core clock speed of 1717 MHz, and 8192 MB of GDDR6 memory running at 1750 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1408 SPUs, 88 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Radeon RX 5500 XT 130 Watts
Geforce GTX 670 170 Watts
Difference: 40 Watts (31%)

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the Radeon RX 5500 XT should in theory be just a bit better than the Geforce GTX 670 in general. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5500 XT is much (approximately 47%) more effective at texture filtering than the Geforce GTX 670. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 XT 151096 Mtexels/sec
Geforce GTX 670 102480 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 48616 (47%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 5500 XT is the winner, by far. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 XT 54944 Mpixels/sec
Geforce GTX 670 29280 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 25664 (88%)

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 data (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video 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 that the graphics chip can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock 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 also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
