Radeon RX 480 4GB vs Radeon RX 5500 XT

Intro

The Radeon RX 480 4GB comes with a core clock frequency of 1120 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It is made up of 2304 SPUs, 144 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 5500 XT, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1717 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1750 MHz on this particular model. It features 1408 SPUs as well as 88 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 5500 XT 130 Watts
Radeon RX 480 4GB 150 Watts
Difference: 20 Watts (15%)

Memory Bandwidth

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 480 4GB is a bit (more or less 7%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon RX 5500 XT. (explain)

Radeon RX 480 4GB 161280 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5500 XT 151096 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 10184 (7%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 5500 XT is superior to the Radeon RX 480 4GB, by far. (explain)

Radeon RX 5500 XT 54944 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 480 4GB 35840 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 19104 (53%)

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 largest amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR 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 higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher 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 most pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
