Radeon R9 295X2 vs Radeon RX 5600 XT

Intro

The Radeon R9 295X2 features a GPU clock speed of 1018 MHz, and the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 1250 MHz through a 512-bit bus. It also is made up of 2816 Stream Processors, 176 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 5600 XT, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1375 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM works at a speed of 14000 MHz on this specific card. It features 2304 SPUs as well as 144 TAUs and 64 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 5600 XT 160 Watts
Radeon R9 295X2 500 Watts
Difference: 340 Watts (213%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R9 295X2 should be 86% quicker than the Radeon RX 5600 XT in general, due to its higher data rate. (explain)

Radeon R9 295X2 640000 MB/sec
Radeon RX 5600 XT 344064 MB/sec
Difference: 295936 (86%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 295X2 should be much (more or less 81%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon RX 5600 XT. (explain)

Radeon R9 295X2 358336 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5600 XT 198000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 160336 (81%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 295X2 should be a lot (more or less 48%) more effective at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon RX 5600 XT, and also should be able to handle higher screen resolutions more effectively. (explain)

Radeon R9 295X2 130304 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 5600 XT 88000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 42304 (48%)

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.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once 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 anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
