GeForce RTX 3050 vs Radeon RX 6600 XT

Intro

The GeForce RTX 3050 comes with core clock speeds of 1552 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 2560 SPUs as well as 80 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 6600 XT, which comes with core clock speeds of 1968 MHz on the GPU, and 2000 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR6 memory. It features 2048 SPUs as well as 128 TAUs and 64 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce RTX 3050 130 Watts
Radeon RX 6600 XT 160 Watts
Difference: 30 Watts (23%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon RX 6600 XT is 14% quicker than the GeForce RTX 3050 in general, due to its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon RX 6600 XT 262144 MB/sec
GeForce RTX 3050 229376 MB/sec
Difference: 32768 (14%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6600 XT is quite a bit (about 103%) better at AF than the GeForce RTX 3050. (explain)

Radeon RX 6600 XT 251904 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 3050 124160 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 127744 (103%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 6600 XT should be a lot (more or less 154%) better at FSAA than the GeForce RTX 3050, and also should be able to handle higher screen resolutions more effectively. (explain)

Radeon RX 6600 XT 125952 Mpixels/sec
GeForce RTX 3050 49664 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 76288 (154%)

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 information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better 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 are applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
