Radeon RX 5500 vs Radeon RX 5500 XT

Intro

The Radeon RX 5500 makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1670 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM runs at a speed of 14000 MHz on this model. It features 1408 SPUs as well as 88 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 5500 XT, which comes with clock speeds of 1717 MHz on the GPU, and 14000 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR6 memory. It features 1408 SPUs along with 88 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 5500 XT 130 Watts
Radeon RX 5500 150 Watts
Difference: 20 Watts (15%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have exactly the same bandwidth, so theoretically they should perform the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5500 XT is a bit (approximately 3%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon RX 5500. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 XT 151096 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5500 146960 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 4136 (3%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon RX 5500 XT is the winner, but not by far. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 XT 54944 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 5500 53440 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1504 (3%)

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 (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better 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 processed per 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 video 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 most pixels the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
