Radeon R9 Fury X vs Radeon RX Vega 56

Intro

The Radeon R9 Fury X comes with a GPU core speed of 1050 MHz, and the 4096 MB of HBM RAM runs at 500 MHz through a 4096-bit bus. It also is comprised of 4096 SPUs, 256 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX Vega 56, which comes with clock speeds of 1156 MHz on the GPU, and 1600 MHz on the 8192 MB of HBM2 memory. It features 3584 SPUs as well as 224 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Radeon RX Vega 56 419430 MB/sec
Difference: 92570 (22%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 Fury X should be a little bit (approximately 4%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon RX Vega 56. (explain)

Radeon R9 Fury X 268800 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX Vega 56 258944 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 9856 (4%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX Vega 56 will be a little bit (more or less 10%) better at AA than the Radeon R9 Fury X, and also will be able to handle higher screen resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon RX Vega 56 73984 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 Fury X 67200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6784 (10%)

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 (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better 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 maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
