Radeon RX 5600 XT vs Radeon RX Vega 56

Intro

The Radeon RX 5600 XT uses a 7 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1375 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM is set to run at a speed of 14000 MHz on this specific model. It features 2304 SPUs as well as 144 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX Vega 56, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1156 MHz. The HBM2 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1600 MHz on this model. It features 3584 SPUs as well as 224 Texture Address Units and 64 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 5600 XT 160 Watts
Radeon RX Vega 56 210 Watts
Difference: 50 Watts (31%)

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon RX Vega 56 should theoretically perform quite a bit faster than the Radeon RX 5600 XT in general. (explain)

Radeon RX Vega 56 419430 MB/sec
Radeon RX 5600 XT 344064 MB/sec
Difference: 75366 (22%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX Vega 56 is much (about 31%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon RX 5600 XT. (explain)

Radeon RX Vega 56 258944 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5600 XT 198000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 60944 (31%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon RX 5600 XT is superior to the Radeon RX Vega 56, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

Radeon RX 5600 XT 88000 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX Vega 56 73984 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 14016 (19%)

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 information (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the better 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per 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 video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core 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 is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
