Radeon RX 6800 XT vs Radeon RX Vega 64

Intro

The Radeon RX 6800 XT comes with a clock frequency of 1825 MHz and a GDDR6 memory speed of 2000 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit bus, and uses a 7 nm design. It is made up of 4608 SPUs, 288 Texture Address Units, and 128 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX Vega 64, which comes with GPU core speed of 1247 MHz, and 8192 MB of HBM2 memory running at 1890 MHz through a 2048-bit bus. It also features 4096 Stream Processors, 256 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Radeon RX Vega 64 495411 MB/sec
Difference: 28877 (6%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6800 XT is a lot (more or less 65%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon RX Vega 64. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 XT 525600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX Vega 64 319232 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 206368 (65%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6800 XT is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends 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.
