GeForce GTX 950 vs Radeon RX 6700 XT

Intro

The GeForce GTX 950 comes with a core clock frequency of 1024 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1652 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 768 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 6700 XT, which features a clock speed of 2321 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 2000 MHz. It also features a 192-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 7 nm design. It is made up of 2560 SPUs, 160 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

The Radeon RX 6700 XT is quite a bit (about 656%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 950. (explain)

Radeon RX 6700 XT 371360 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 950 49152 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 322208 (656%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 6700 XT is much (more or less 353%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce GTX 950, and also able to handle higher resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon RX 6700 XT 148544 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 950 32768 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 115776 (353%)

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 data (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated 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 drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
