GeForce GTX 1650 vs Radeon RX 6500 XT

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1650 makes use of a 12 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1485 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 2001 MHz on this particular model. It features 896 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 6500 XT, which has GPU clock speed of 2200 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR6 RAM running at 2250 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1024 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

The Radeon RX 6500 XT is much (more or less 69%) more effective at anisotropic 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 should be a lot (approximately 48%) better at anti-aliasing than the GeForce GTX 1650, and also able to handle higher screen resolutions better. (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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units 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 that the graphics chip can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output 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 reach the maximum fill rate.
