GeForce RTX 3050 vs Radeon RX 6600

Intro

The GeForce RTX 3050 features a clock speed of 1552 MHz and a GDDR6 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 8 nm design. It features 2560 SPUs, 80 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 6600, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1626 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM runs at a speed of 1750 MHz on this model. It features 1792 SPUs as well as 112 Texture Address Units and 64 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce RTX 3050 130 Watts
Radeon RX 6600 132 Watts
Difference: 2 Watts (2%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have exactly the same bandwidth, so in theory they should perform the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6600 will be a lot (about 47%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce RTX 3050. (explain)

Radeon RX 6600 182112 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 3050 124160 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 57952 (47%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 6600 is a lot (about 110%) more effective at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce RTX 3050, and capable of handling higher screen resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon RX 6600 104064 Mpixels/sec
GeForce RTX 3050 49664 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 54400 (110%)

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 data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core 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 per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
