Compare any two graphics cards:
VS

Radeon RX 5700 vs Radeon RX 5700 XT

Intro

The Radeon RX 5700 features a GPU core clock speed of 1465 MHz, and the 8096 MB of GDDR6 RAM runs at 1750 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 2304 SPUs, 144 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 5700 XT, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1605 MHz. The GDDR6 memory runs at a speed of 1750 MHz on this model. It features 2560 SPUs as well as 160 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 5700 180 Watts
Radeon RX 5700 XT 225 Watts
Difference: 45 Watts (25%)

Memory Bandwidth

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5700 XT is quite a bit (more or less 22%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon RX 5700. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 XT 256800 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 210960 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 45840 (22%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon RX 5700 XT is the winner, but only just. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 XT 102720 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 93760 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 8960 (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 maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once 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 anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number 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 per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
