GeForce GTX 560 Ti vs Radeon RX 6500 XT

Intro

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 822 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a frequency of 1002 MHz on this specific card. It features 384 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6500 XT will be a lot (more or less 168%) better at texture filtering 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 lots of anti-aliasing 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 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 (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video 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 the video card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
