Geforce GTX 1080 Ti vs Radeon RX 5700

Intro

The Geforce GTX 1080 Ti uses a 16 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1480 MHz. The GDDR5X memory works at a frequency of 1376 MHz on this particular model. It features 3584 SPUs as well as 224 TAUs and 88 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 5700, which uses a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1465 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1750 MHz on this card. It features 2304 SPUs along with 144 TAUs and 64 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 5700 180 Watts
Geforce GTX 1080 Ti 250 Watts
Difference: 70 Watts (39%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Geforce GTX 1080 Ti is 8% faster than the Radeon RX 5700 overall, because of its higher bandwidth. (explain)

Geforce GTX 1080 Ti 495616 MB/sec
Radeon RX 5700 458752 MB/sec
Difference: 36864 (8%)

Texel Rate

The Geforce GTX 1080 Ti is much (more or less 57%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon RX 5700. (explain)

Geforce GTX 1080 Ti 331520 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 210960 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 120560 (57%)

Pixel Rate

The Geforce GTX 1080 Ti will be quite a bit (approximately 39%) better at anti-aliasing than the Radeon RX 5700, and also should be able to handle higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Geforce GTX 1080 Ti 130240 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 93760 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 36480 (39%)

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 (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
