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

Intro

The Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1680 MHz. The GDDR6 memory runs at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this card. It features 2560 SPUs as well as 160 Texture Address Units and 64 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, which comes with GPU core speed of 1382 MHz, and 16384 MB of HBM2 RAM running at 1890 MHz through a 2048-bit bus. It also features 4096 Stream Processors, 256 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, 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 amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher 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 video card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
