Radeon RX 5500 XT vs Radeon RX 570

Intro

The Radeon RX 5500 XT has a core clock frequency of 1717 MHz and a GDDR6 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 7 nm design. It is comprised of 1408 SPUs, 88 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 570, which comes with a clock speed of 1168 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It features 2048 SPUs, 128 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 5500 XT 130 Watts
Radeon RX 570 150 Watts
Difference: 20 Watts (15%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have exactly the same memory bandwidth, so in theory they should have identical performance. (explain)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5500 XT should be just a bit (more or less 1%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon RX 570. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 XT 151096 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 570 149504 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 1592 (1%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon RX 5500 XT is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 XT 54944 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 570 37376 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 17568 (47%)

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 data (in units of MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
