GeForce GTX 1050 Ti vs Radeon RX 550

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti has core speeds of 1290 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 768 SPUs as well as 48 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 550, which has core speeds of 1100 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 512 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 550 50 Watts
GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 75 Watts
Difference: 25 Watts (50%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have the exact same bandwidth, so in theory they should perform the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti will be a lot (about 76%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon RX 550. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 61920 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 550 35200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 26720 (76%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is the winner, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 41280 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 550 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: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the 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 amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
