Radeon RX 5700 vs Radeon Vega Frontier Edition

Intro

The Radeon RX 5700 uses a 7 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1465 MHz. The GDDR6 memory works at a speed of 14000 MHz on this specific model. It features 2304 SPUs along with 144 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, which comes with clock speeds of 1382 MHz on the GPU, and 1890 MHz on the 16384 MB of HBM2 RAM. It features 4096 SPUs along with 256 TAUs and 64 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 5700 180 Watts
Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 300 Watts
Difference: 120 Watts (67%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition should be 8% faster than the Radeon RX 5700 overall, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 495452 MB/sec
Radeon RX 5700 458752 MB/sec
Difference: 36700 (8%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition should be quite a bit (about 68%) more effective at AF than the Radeon RX 5700. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 5700 is the winner, though only just barely. (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: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it must 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 are processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock 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 in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
