GeForce GTX 570 vs Radeon RX 6500 XT

Intro

The GeForce GTX 570 comes with a clock frequency of 732 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 950 MHz. It also uses a 320-bit memory bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It features 480 SPUs, 60 TAUs, and 40 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 6500 XT, which features GPU core speed of 2200 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR6 RAM set to run at 2250 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1024 Stream Processors, 64 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 6500 XT 107 Watts
GeForce GTX 570 219 Watts
Difference: 112 Watts (105%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 570 is 3% faster than the Radeon RX 6500 XT in general, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce GTX 570 152000 MB/sec
Radeon RX 6500 XT 147456 MB/sec
Difference: 4544 (3%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6500 XT is much (approximately 221%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 570. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 6500 XT will be quite a bit (more or less 140%) more effective at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce GTX 570, and also capable of handling higher resolutions while still performing well. (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: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. 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 many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
