GeForce GTX 1630 vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1630 features a clock frequency of 1740 MHz and a GDDR6 memory speed of 1500 MHz. It also makes use of a 64-bit memory bus, and uses a 12 nm design. It is made up of 512 SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 560, which features core speeds of 1175 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1024 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 1630 75 Watts
Radeon RX 560 80 Watts
Difference: 5 Watts (7%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon RX 560 should be 17% quicker than the GeForce GTX 1630 in general, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1630 98304 MB/sec
Difference: 16384 (17%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 is a lot (more or less 35%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 1630. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1630 55680 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 19520 (35%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1630 is superior to the Radeon RX 560, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1630 27840 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 9040 (48%)

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 maximum amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel 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.
