GeForce GTX 560 Ti vs Radeon RX 6500 XT

Intro

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti comes with clock speeds of 822 MHz on the GPU, and 1002 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 384 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

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 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 560 Ti 170 Watts
Difference: 63 Watts (59%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the Radeon RX 6500 XT should be just a bit faster than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti overall. (explain)

Radeon RX 6500 XT 147456 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 128256 MB/sec
Difference: 19200 (15%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6500 XT should be much (more or less 168%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti. (explain)

Radeon RX 6500 XT 140800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 52608 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 88192 (168%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6500 XT is superior to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon RX 6500 XT 70400 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 26304 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 44096 (168%)

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 moved across the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at 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 that the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
