Radeon RX 480 vs Radeon RX 5600

Intro

The Radeon RX 480 has a core clock frequency of 1120 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 2000 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It is comprised of 2304 SPUs, 144 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 5600, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1375 MHz. The GDDR6 memory is set to run at a speed of 12000 MHz on this specific card. It features 2048 SPUs along with 128 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon RX 5600 should be 13% faster than the Radeon RX 480 in general, due to its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon RX 5600 294912 MB/sec
Radeon RX 480 262144 MB/sec
Difference: 32768 (13%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5600 should be a little bit (approximately 9%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon RX 480. (explain)

Radeon RX 5600 176000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 480 161280 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 14720 (9%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon RX 5600 is a better choice, by a large margin. (explain)

Radeon RX 5600 88000 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 480 35840 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 52160 (146%)

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 maximum amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at 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 the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate 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 drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
