GeForce GTX 880M vs Radeon RX 6500 XT

Intro

The GeForce GTX 880M has a core clock speed of 954 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1000 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 1536 SPUs, 128 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 6500 XT, which comes with core clock speeds of 2200 MHz on the GPU, and 2250 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 1024 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 6500 XT 107 Watts
GeForce GTX 880M 130 Watts
Difference: 23 Watts (21%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon RX 6500 XT will be 15% faster than the GeForce GTX 880M in general, due to its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon RX 6500 XT 147456 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 880M 128000 MB/sec
Difference: 19456 (15%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6500 XT is a small bit (about 15%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 880M. (explain)

Radeon RX 6500 XT 140800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 880M 122112 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 18688 (15%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6500 XT is superior to the GeForce GTX 880M, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon RX 6500 XT 70400 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 880M 30528 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 39872 (131%)

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 (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, 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 processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number 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 outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends 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 max fill rate.
