GeForce RTX 3050 vs Radeon RX 570

Intro

The GeForce RTX 3050 uses a 8 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1552 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1750 MHz on this particular card. It features 2560 SPUs along with 80 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 570, which has a core clock frequency of 1168 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It features 2048 SPUs, 128 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation 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 memory bandwidth, so in theory they should have the same performance. (explain)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 570 will be a small bit (approximately 20%) better at AF than the GeForce RTX 3050. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

The GeForce RTX 3050 should be quite a bit (more or less 33%) more effective at FSAA than the Radeon RX 570, and should be capable of handling higher resolutions more effectively. (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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
