Radeon Pro Duo vs Radeon Vega Frontier Edition

Intro

The Radeon Pro Duo features clock speeds of 1000 MHz on the GPU, and 500 MHz on the 4096 MB of HBM RAM. It features 4096 SPUs as well as 256 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1382 MHz. The HBM2 memory works at a speed of 1890 MHz on this specific card. It features 4096 SPUs as well as 256 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon Pro Duo should be 107% faster than the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition in general, due to its higher bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon Pro Duo 1024000 MB/sec
Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 495452 MB/sec
Difference: 528548 (107%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon Pro Duo will be a lot (about 45%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition. (explain)

Radeon Pro Duo 512000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 353792 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 158208 (45%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon Pro Duo is superior to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon Pro Duo 128000 Mpixels/sec
Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 88448 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 39552 (45%)

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.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
