VS

Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition vs Radeon RX 6800 XT

Intro

The Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition uses a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1680 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1750 MHz on this card. It features 2560 SPUs as well as 160 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 6800 XT, which comes with clock speeds of 1825 MHz on the GPU, and 2000 MHz on the 16384 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 4608 SPUs along with 288 Texture Address Units and 128 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs 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 output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
