Radeon RX 480 vs Radeon RX 5600

Intro

The Radeon RX 480 makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1120 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a speed of 2000 MHz on this particular card. It features 2304 SPUs along with 144 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 5600, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1375 MHz. The GDDR6 memory works at a frequency of 12000 MHz on this specific card. It features 2048 SPUs as well as 128 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon RX 5600 should be just a bit faster than the Radeon RX 480 overall. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5600 is a small bit (more or less 9%) more effective at AF than the Radeon RX 480. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution 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 max amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card could 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 Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. 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 also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
