Radeon RX 5600 vs Radeon RX 590

Intro

The Radeon RX 5600 has core speeds of 1375 MHz on the GPU, and 1500 MHz on the 6144 MB of GDDR6 memory. It features 2048 SPUs as well as 128 Texture Address Units and 64 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 590, which has GPU clock speed of 1469 MHz, and 8192 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 2000 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 2304 SPUs, 144 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Radeon RX 590 211536 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5600 176000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 35536 (20%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 5600 will be a lot (more or less 87%) faster with regards to AA than the Radeon RX 590, and also should be capable of handling higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Radeon RX 5600 88000 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 590 47008 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 40992 (87%)

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 largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should 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 AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen 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 graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. 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 also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
