Radeon R7 370 2G vs Radeon RX 6800

Intro

The Radeon R7 370 2G makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 975 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a frequency of 1400 MHz on this particular card. It features 1024 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 6800, which features a core clock frequency of 1700 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 2000 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 7 nm design. It features 3840 SPUs, 240 TAUs, and 96 ROPs.

Radeon RX 6800 524288 MB/sec
Radeon R7 370 2G 179200 MB/sec
Difference: 345088 (193%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6800 is much (about 554%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon R7 370 2G. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 408000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 370 2G 62400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 345600 (554%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 6800 will be quite a bit (about 423%) more effective at anti-aliasing than the Radeon R7 370 2G, and will be able to handle higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 163200 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 370 2G 31200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 132000 (423%)

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 data (counted in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster 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 texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
