GeForce RTX 3050 vs Radeon RX 570

Intro

The GeForce RTX 3050 comes with a clock speed of 1552 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 1750 MHz. It also features a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 8 nm design. It is made up of 2560 SPUs, 80 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 570, which uses a 14 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1168 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 1750 MHz on this specific model. It features 2048 SPUs as well as 128 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce RTX 3050 130 Watts
Radeon RX 570 150 Watts
Difference: 20 Watts (15%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have exactly the same bandwidth, so theoretically they should have the same performance. (explain)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 570 should be a bit (approximately 20%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce RTX 3050. (explain)

Radeon RX 570 149504 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 3050 124160 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 25344 (20%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce RTX 3050 is superior to the Radeon RX 570, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce RTX 3050 49664 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 570 37376 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 12288 (33%)

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 largest amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per 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 calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
