GeForce GTX 650 vs Radeon RX 5500

Intro

The GeForce GTX 650 comes with a clock speed of 1058 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1250 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 384 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 5500, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1670 MHz. The GDDR6 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this particular model. It features 1408 SPUs along with 88 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 650 64 Watts
Radeon RX 5500 150 Watts
Difference: 86 Watts (134%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon RX 5500 will be 187% quicker than the GeForce GTX 650 in general, due to its higher bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 229376 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 650 80000 MB/sec
Difference: 149376 (187%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5500 will be a lot (about 334%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GTX 650. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 146960 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 650 33856 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 113104 (334%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon RX 5500 is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 53440 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 650 16928 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 36512 (216%)

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 largest amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, 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 figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs 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 output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
