Radeon R9 390X 8G vs Radeon RX 5700

Intro

The Radeon R9 390X 8G comes with a GPU core speed of 1050 MHz, and the 8192 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 1500 MHz through a 512-bit bus. It also features 2816 Stream Processors, 176 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 5700, which comes with core 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.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR 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 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 in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
