Radeon HD 4890 2GB vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The Radeon HD 4890 2GB makes use of a 55 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1000 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 975 MHz on this model. It features 800(160x5) SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 560, which comes with core speeds of 1175 MHz on the GPU, and 7000 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 1024 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
Difference: 10112 (9%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 is quite a bit (about 88%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 4890 2GB. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 4890 2GB 40000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 35200 (88%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon RX 560 is the winner, but not by far. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 4890 2GB 16000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2800 (18%)

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 data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster 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 can be applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

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