Radeon RX 560 vs Radeon VII

Intro

The Radeon RX 560 comes with a GPU clock speed of 1175 MHz, and the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 7000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 1024 Stream Processors, 64 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon VII, which comes with GPU clock speed of 1400 MHz, and 16384 MB of HBM2 RAM running at 1000 MHz through a 4096-bit bus. It also features 3840 Stream Processors, 240 TAUs, and 64 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 560 80 Watts
Radeon VII 295 Watts
Difference: 215 Watts (269%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon VII is 814% quicker than the Radeon RX 560 overall, due to its higher data rate. (explain)

Radeon VII 1048576 MB/sec
Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
Difference: 933888 (814%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon VII will be quite a bit (about 347%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon RX 560. (explain)

Radeon VII 336000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 260800 (347%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon VII should be a lot (approximately 377%) more effective at anti-aliasing than the Radeon RX 560, and should be capable of handling higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Radeon VII 89600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 70800 (377%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units 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 fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
