VS

Radeon RX 5700 XT vs Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition

Intro

The Radeon RX 5700 XT comes with a core clock speed of 1605 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 1750 MHz. It also features a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 7 nm design. It features 2560 SPUs, 160 TAUs, and 64 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition, which features a core clock frequency of 1680 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 1750 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 7 nm design. It is comprised of 2560 SPUs, 160 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 5700 XT 225 Watts
Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition 235 Watts
Difference: 10 Watts (4%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have exactly the same memory bandwidth, so theoretically they should have the same performance. (explain)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition is just a bit (approximately 5%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon RX 5700 XT. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition 268800 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 XT 256800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 12000 (5%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition is a better choice, though not by far. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition 107520 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 XT 102720 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4800 (5%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better 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 applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
