Radeon RX 480 4GB vs Radeon RX 5700

Intro

The Radeon RX 480 4GB makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1120 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1750 MHz on this particular card. It features 2304 SPUs as well as 144 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 5700, which comes with a core clock speed of 1465 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 14000 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 7 nm design. It is comprised of 2304 SPUs, 144 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total 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 in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
