Radeon RX 480 vs Radeon RX 5700

Intro

The Radeon RX 480 has core clock speeds of 1120 MHz on the GPU, and 2000 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 2304 SPUs along with 144 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 5700, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1465 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM is set to run at a speed of 14000 MHz on this particular model. It features 2304 SPUs as well as 144 TAUs and 64 ROPs.

Radeon RX 480 262144 MB/sec
Difference: 196608 (75%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5700 is quite a bit (approximately 31%) better at AF than the Radeon RX 480. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 210960 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 480 161280 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 49680 (31%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 5700 is superior to the Radeon RX 480, by far. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 93760 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 480 35840 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 57920 (162%)

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 max amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the better 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 can be applied in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

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