Radeon RX 5700 vs Radeon Vega Frontier Edition

Intro

The Radeon RX 5700 has clock speeds of 1465 MHz on the GPU, and 14000 MHz on the 8096 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 2304 SPUs as well as 144 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, which has a core clock speed of 1382 MHz and a HBM2 memory frequency of 1890 MHz. It also makes use of a 2048-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It is comprised of 4096 SPUs, 256 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

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

The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition should theoretically be a small bit faster than the Radeon RX 5700 in general. (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 much (about 68%) faster with regards to 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

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 5700 is the winner, not by a very large margin though. (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 information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied 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 graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
