Compare any two graphics cards:
VS

Radeon R9 Fury X vs Radeon R9 Nano

Intro

The Radeon R9 Fury X comes with a GPU clock speed of 1050 MHz, and the 4096 MB of HBM memory runs at 500 MHz through a 4096-bit bus. It also is made up of 4096 SPUs, 256 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 Nano, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1000 MHz. The HBM memory works at a frequency of 500 MHz on this particular model. It features 4096 SPUs along with 256 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 Fury X is a small bit (about 5%) better at AF than the Radeon R9 Nano. (explain)

Radeon R9 Fury X 268800 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 Nano 256000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 12800 (5%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 Fury X should be a bit (approximately 5%) better at FSAA than the Radeon R9 Nano, and also will be able to handle higher resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon R9 Fury X 67200 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 Nano 64000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3200 (5%)

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 moved past the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's 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 is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

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