Radeon HD 4890 2GB vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The Radeon HD 4890 2GB uses a 55 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1000 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a frequency of 975 MHz on this model. It features 800(160x5) SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 560, which has a core clock speed of 1175 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 7000 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It is comprised of 1024 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 will be quite a bit (about 88%) better at AF 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 a high screen resolution 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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once 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 AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
