VS

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs Radeon RX 5700 XT

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB has core clock speeds of 1392 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 3072 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 768 SPUs as well as 48 TAUs and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 5700 XT, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1605 MHz. The GDDR6 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this card. It features 2560 SPUs along with 160 Texture Address Units and 64 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 75 Watts
Radeon RX 5700 XT 225 Watts
Difference: 150 Watts (200%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon RX 5700 XT should be 433% quicker than the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB overall, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 XT 458752 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 86016 MB/sec
Difference: 372736 (433%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5700 XT will be quite a bit (about 284%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 XT 256800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 66816 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 189984 (284%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 5700 XT is much (approximately 207%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB, and also should be able to handle higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 XT 102720 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 33408 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 69312 (207%)

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 max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock 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 applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
