Radeon RX 5700 vs Radeon RX 6800 XT

Intro

The Radeon RX 5700 features core clock speeds of 1465 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 8096 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 2304 SPUs as well as 144 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 6800 XT, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1825 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM works at a speed of 2000 MHz on this particular model. It features 4608 SPUs as well as 288 TAUs and 128 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

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