Compare any two graphics cards:
VS

Geforce GTX 670 vs Radeon RX 5500 XT

Intro

The Geforce GTX 670 comes with clock speeds of 915 MHz on the GPU, and 1500 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 1344 SPUs as well as 112 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 5500 XT, which has clock speeds of 1717 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 1408 SPUs as well as 88 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 5500 XT 130 Watts
Geforce GTX 670 170 Watts
Difference: 40 Watts (31%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon RX 5500 XT should be a small bit faster than the Geforce GTX 670 in general. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 XT 229376 MB/sec
Geforce GTX 670 192000 MB/sec
Difference: 37376 (19%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5500 XT should be quite a bit (about 47%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Geforce GTX 670. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 XT 151096 Mtexels/sec
Geforce GTX 670 102480 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 48616 (47%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 5500 XT is a lot (approximately 88%) more effective at anti-aliasing than the Geforce GTX 670, and should be capable of handling higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 XT 54944 Mpixels/sec
Geforce GTX 670 29280 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 25664 (88%)

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 max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 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 in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, 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 graphics card could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate 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 drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
