Radeon HD 7990 vs Radeon Pro Duo

Intro

The Radeon HD 7990 features a GPU core speed of 950 MHz, and the 3072 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 1500 MHz through a 384-bit bus. It also features 2048 Stream Processors, 128 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon Pro Duo, which features a clock speed of 1000 MHz and a HBM memory speed of 500 MHz. It also makes use of a 4096-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is made up of 4096 SPUs, 256 TAUs, and 64 ROPs.

Radeon HD 7990 576000 MB/sec
Difference: 448000 (78%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon Pro Duo is a lot (more or less 111%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 7990. (explain)

Radeon Pro Duo 512000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 7990 243200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 268800 (111%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon Pro Duo is superior to the Radeon HD 7990, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon Pro Duo 128000 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 7990 60800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 67200 (111%)

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.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock 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 applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
