GeForce GT 1030 vs Radeon RX 5700

Intro

The GeForce GT 1030 makes use of a 16 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1265 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a frequency of 1502 MHz on this particular model. It features 384 SPUs along with 32 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 5700, which features core speeds of 1465 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 8096 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 2304 SPUs along with 144 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied per 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 applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core 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 is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
