GeForce GTX 980 Ti vs Radeon RX 5600 XT

Intro

The GeForce GTX 980 Ti comes with a GPU core speed of 1000 MHz, and the 6144 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 1750 MHz through a 384-bit bus. It also features 2816 SPUs, 176 TAUs, and 96 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 5600 XT, which comes with a core clock frequency of 1375 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 1500 MHz. It also makes use of a 192-bit memory bus, and uses a 7 nm design. It is made up of 2304 SPUs, 144 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 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 anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock 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 the video card can possibly record to the 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 core speed of the card. 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 many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
