Radeon RX 6800 XT 524288 MB/sec
Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition 458752 MB/sec
Difference: 65536 (14%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6800 XT should be quite a bit (more or less 96%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 XT 525600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition 268800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 256800 (96%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 6800 XT will be quite a bit (approximately 117%) faster with regards to AA than the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition, and also capable of handling higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 XT 233600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition 107520 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 126080 (117%)

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 transported across the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If 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 higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. 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 memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
