Radeon RX 5700 XT vs Radeon Vega Frontier Edition

Intro

The Radeon RX 5700 XT uses a 7 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1605 MHz. The GDDR6 memory is set to run at a speed of 14000 MHz on this specific card. It features 2560 SPUs along with 160 Texture Address Units and 64 ROPs.

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

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 5700 XT 225 Watts
Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 300 Watts
Difference: 75 Watts (33%)

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, in theory, should be a bit faster than the Radeon RX 5700 XT in general. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition should be a lot (approximately 38%) more effective at AF than the Radeon RX 5700 XT. (explain)

Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 353792 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 XT 256800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 96992 (38%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 5700 XT is a better choice, but only just. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 XT 102720 Mpixels/sec
Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 88448 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 14272 (16%)

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 largest amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
