GeForce GTX 1050 Ti vs Radeon R9 M385X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti makes use of a 14 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1290 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 1750 MHz on this card. It features 768 SPUs as well as 48 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 M385X, which comes with GPU core speed of 1100 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1500 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 896 Stream Processors, 56 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 114688 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M385X 96000 MB/sec
Difference: 18688 (19%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is just a bit (more or less 1%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon R9 M385X. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 61920 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M385X 61600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 320 (1%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti will be much (more or less 135%) faster with regards to FSAA than the Radeon R9 M385X, and will be capable of handling higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 41280 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M385X 17600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 23680 (135%)

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 largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be moved over 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 the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, 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 most pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
