Radeon RX 5600 vs Radeon RX 580

Intro

The Radeon RX 5600 comes with core speeds of 1375 MHz on the GPU, and 12000 MHz on the 6144 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 2048 SPUs as well as 128 TAUs and 64 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 580, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1257 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a frequency of 2000 MHz on this specific card. It features 2304 SPUs as well as 144 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
