Radeon R9 Fury X vs Radeon Vega Frontier Edition

Intro

The Radeon R9 Fury X has a clock frequency of 1050 MHz and a HBM memory speed of 500 MHz. It also uses a 4096-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 4096 SPUs, 256 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, which features clock speeds of 1382 MHz on the GPU, and 1890 MHz on the 16384 MB of HBM2 memory. It features 4096 SPUs along with 256 Texture Address Units and 64 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card 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 applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
