Radeon RX 480 vs Radeon RX 5500

Intro

The Radeon RX 480 features 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 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 5500, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1670 MHz. The GDDR6 memory runs at a speed of 14000 MHz on this particular card. It features 1408 SPUs along with 88 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon RX 480 should in theory be a bit faster than the Radeon RX 5500 overall. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 480 is a bit (more or less 10%) more effective at 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 should be a lot (approximately 49%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon RX 480, and 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 max amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling 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 that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
