GeForce GTX 1650 vs Radeon RX 6500 XT

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1650 features a clock frequency of 1485 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 2001 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 12 nm design. It is made up of 896 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 6500 XT, which has core speeds of 2200 MHz on the GPU, and 2250 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR6 memory. It features 1024 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

GeForce GTX 1650 131072 MB/sec
Difference: 16384 (13%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6500 XT will be quite a bit (more or less 69%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 1650. (explain)

Radeon RX 6500 XT 140800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1650 83160 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 57640 (69%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 6500 XT is quite a bit (about 48%) faster with regards to FSAA than the GeForce GTX 1650, and will be able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon RX 6500 XT 70400 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 1650 47520 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 22880 (48%)

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 (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video 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 amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
