Radeon Pro Duo vs Radeon Vega Frontier Edition

Intro

The Radeon Pro Duo uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1000 MHz. The HBM memory runs at a frequency of 500 MHz on this specific card. It features 4096 SPUs as well as 256 Texture Address Units and 64 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, which has GPU core speed of 1382 MHz, and 16384 MB of HBM2 RAM set to run at 1890 MHz through a 2048-bit bus. It also is made up of 4096 SPUs, 256 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon Pro Duo is a lot (more or less 45%) more effective at AF 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

The Radeon Pro Duo will be much (approximately 45%) more effective at FSAA than the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, and able to handle higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (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: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number 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 handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
