GeForce GTX 570 vs Radeon RX 6500 XT

Intro

The GeForce GTX 570 comes with a GPU core clock speed of 732 MHz, and the 1280 MB of GDDR5 RAM runs at 950 MHz through a 320-bit bus. It also is comprised of 480 Stream Processors, 60 Texture Address Units, and 40 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 6500 XT, which has a clock frequency of 2200 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 2250 MHz. It also makes use of a 64-bit bus, and uses a 6 nm design. It features 1024 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Radeon RX 6500 XT 147456 MB/sec
Difference: 4544 (3%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6500 XT will be quite a bit (approximately 221%) better at AF than the GeForce GTX 570. (explain)

Radeon RX 6500 XT 140800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 570 43920 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 96880 (221%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6500 XT is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

Radeon RX 6500 XT 70400 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 570 29280 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 41120 (140%)

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 largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount 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 processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel 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 get to the maximum fill rate.
