Radeon RX 5700 vs Radeon Vega Frontier Edition

Intro

The Radeon RX 5700 has a clock speed of 1465 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 14000 MHz. It also features a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 7 nm design. It features 2304 SPUs, 144 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, which comes with a clock frequency of 1382 MHz and a HBM2 memory speed of 1890 MHz. It also features a 2048-bit memory bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It is comprised of 4096 SPUs, 256 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Radeon RX 5700 458752 MB/sec
Difference: 36700 (8%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is quite a bit (approximately 68%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon RX 5700. (explain)

Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 353792 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 210960 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 142832 (68%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 5700 is a little bit (about 6%) better at anti-aliasing than the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, and also should be able to handle higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 93760 Mpixels/sec
Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 88448 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5312 (6%)

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 data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units 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 processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as 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 - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
