Radeon HD 5830 vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The Radeon HD 5830 has a core clock speed of 800 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1000 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 1120(224x5) SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 560, which features core speeds of 1175 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 1024 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 560 80 Watts
Radeon HD 5830 175 Watts
Difference: 95 Watts (119%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the Radeon HD 5830 should be a little bit faster than the Radeon RX 560 in general. (explain)

Radeon HD 5830 128000 MB/sec
Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
Difference: 13312 (12%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 is quite a bit (about 68%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 5830. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5830 44800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 30400 (68%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon RX 560 is the winner, by far. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 5830 12800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6000 (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 maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card 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 in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number 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 Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
