GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs Radeon RX 6650 XT

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB features a GPU clock speed of 1392 MHz, and the 3072 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 1750 MHz through a 96-bit bus. It also is made up of 768 Stream Processors, 48 Texture Address Units, and 24 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 6650 XT, which comes with GPU core speed of 2055 MHz, and 8192 MB of GDDR6 memory set to run at 2190 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 2048 SPUs, 128 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. 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 rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
