Radeon HD 5830 vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The Radeon HD 5830 makes use of a 40 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 800 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a speed of 1000 MHz on this particular card. It features 1120(224x5) SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 560, which comes with a core clock speed of 1175 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 7000 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It is made up of 1024 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 560 80 Watts
Radeon HD 5830 175 Watts
Difference: 95 Watts (119%)

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon HD 5830, in theory, should be just a bit faster than the Radeon RX 560 in general. (explain)

Radeon HD 5830 128000 MB/sec
Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
Difference: 13312 (12%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 should be quite a bit (about 68%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 5830. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5830 44800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 30400 (68%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 560 is superior to the Radeon HD 5830, by far. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 5830 12800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6000 (47%)

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 maximum amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster 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 processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
