GeForce GTX 275 vs Radeon RX 6500 XT

Intro

The GeForce GTX 275 features core clock speeds of 633 MHz on the GPU, and 1134 MHz on the 896 MB of GDDR3 memory. It features 240 SPUs as well as 80 TAUs and 28 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 6500 XT, which makes use of a 6 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 2200 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM works at a frequency of 2250 MHz on this specific model. It features 1024 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 6500 XT 107 Watts
GeForce GTX 275 219 Watts
Difference: 112 Watts (105%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon RX 6500 XT should be 16% faster than the GeForce GTX 275 overall, due to its higher data rate. (explain)

Radeon RX 6500 XT 147456 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 275 127008 MB/sec
Difference: 20448 (16%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6500 XT is quite a bit (about 178%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GTX 275. (explain)

Radeon RX 6500 XT 140800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 275 50640 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 90160 (178%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 6500 XT should be a lot (more or less 297%) faster with regards to FSAA than the GeForce GTX 275, and will be able to handle higher resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon RX 6500 XT 70400 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 275 17724 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 52676 (297%)

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 maximum amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video 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 the video card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
