VS

Radeon R9 Nano vs Radeon RX 5700

Intro

The Radeon R9 Nano comes with a GPU core clock speed of 1000 MHz, and the 4096 MB of HBM RAM runs at 500 MHz through a 4096-bit bus. It also is made up of 4096 Stream Processors, 256 TAUs, and 64 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 5700, which comes with clock speeds of 1465 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 8096 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 2304 SPUs along with 144 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon R9 Nano 175 Watts
Radeon RX 5700 180 Watts
Difference: 5 Watts (3%)

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the Radeon R9 Nano should in theory be a small bit superior to the Radeon RX 5700 overall. (explain)

Radeon R9 Nano 512000 MB/sec
Radeon RX 5700 458752 MB/sec
Difference: 53248 (12%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 Nano should be quite a bit (about 21%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon RX 5700. (explain)

Radeon R9 Nano 256000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 210960 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 45040 (21%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 5700 should be a lot (about 47%) faster with regards to AA than the Radeon R9 Nano, and also will be able to handle higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 93760 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 Nano 64000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 29760 (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 largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

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