Radeon RX 5700 vs Radeon RX 6800 XT

Intro

The Radeon RX 5700 makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1465 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM runs at a speed of 1750 MHz on this specific card. It features 2304 SPUs along with 144 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 6800 XT, which uses a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1825 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM works at a speed of 2000 MHz on this card. It features 4608 SPUs as well as 288 TAUs and 128 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 5700 180 Watts
Radeon RX 6800 XT 300 Watts
Difference: 120 Watts (67%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon RX 6800 XT is 14% faster than the Radeon RX 5700 in general, due to its higher data rate. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6800 XT is a lot (about 149%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon RX 5700. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 XT 525600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 210960 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 314640 (149%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 6800 XT is a lot (approximately 149%) faster with regards to AA than the Radeon RX 5700, and also should be able to handle higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 XT 233600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 93760 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 139840 (149%)

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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen 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 amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels 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 amount of colour 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 is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
