GeForce GTX 1070 262144 MB/sec
Difference: 24928 (10%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6650 XT is a lot (about 46%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 1070. (explain)

Radeon RX 6650 XT 263040 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1070 180720 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 82320 (46%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 6650 XT is quite a bit (approximately 36%) faster with regards to anti-aliasing than the GeForce GTX 1070, and will be capable of handling higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Radeon RX 6650 XT 131520 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 1070 96384 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 35136 (36%)

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 information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video 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 the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
