Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon RX 480 should in theory perform a little bit faster than the Radeon RX 5500 in general. (explain)

Radeon RX 480 262144 MB/sec
Radeon RX 5500 229376 MB/sec
Difference: 32768 (14%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 480 is a little bit (about 10%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon RX 5500. (explain)

Radeon RX 480 161280 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5500 146960 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 14320 (10%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 5500 will be a lot (approximately 49%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon RX 480, and also will be capable of handling higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 53440 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 480 35840 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 17600 (49%)

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 largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
