Radeon R9 Fury X vs Radeon RX Vega 56

Intro

The Radeon R9 Fury X makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1050 MHz. The HBM memory is set to run at a speed of 500 MHz on this particular card. It features 4096 SPUs as well as 256 Texture Address Units and 64 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX Vega 56, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1156 MHz. The HBM2 memory works at a speed of 1600 MHz on this specific model. It features 3584 SPUs along with 224 TAUs and 64 ROPs.

Radeon R9 Fury X 512000 MB/sec
Radeon RX Vega 56 419430 MB/sec
Difference: 92570 (22%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 Fury X should be a bit (about 4%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon RX Vega 56. (explain)

Radeon R9 Fury X 268800 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX Vega 56 258944 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 9856 (4%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX Vega 56 is superior to the Radeon R9 Fury X, but only just. (explain)

Radeon RX Vega 56 73984 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 Fury X 67200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6784 (10%)

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 max amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount 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 rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
