Radeon RX 480 vs Radeon RX 5600

Intro

The Radeon RX 480 comes with clock speeds of 1120 MHz on the GPU, and 2000 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 2304 SPUs as well as 144 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 5600, which comes with a core clock frequency of 1375 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 12000 MHz. It also features a 192-bit bus, and uses a 7 nm design. It features 2048 SPUs, 128 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon RX 5600 should in theory be a bit faster than the Radeon RX 480 in general. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5600 should be just a bit (approximately 9%) better 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

The Radeon RX 5600 is quite a bit (approximately 146%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon RX 480, and also should be able to handle higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (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: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
