Radeon RX 5600 vs Radeon RX 6900 XT

Intro

The Radeon RX 5600 features a clock frequency of 1375 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 1500 MHz. It also features a 192-bit memory bus, and uses a 7 nm design. It is made up of 2048 SPUs, 128 TAUs, and 64 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 6900 XT, which has core clock speeds of 1825 MHz on the GPU, and 2000 MHz on the 16384 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 5120 SPUs along with 320 Texture Address Units and 128 ROPs.

Radeon RX 5600 176000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 408000 (232%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 6900 XT should be a lot (more or less 165%) more effective at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon RX 5600, and able to handle higher resolutions more effectively. (explain)

Radeon RX 6900 XT 233600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 5600 88000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 145600 (165%)

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 maximum amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the 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 most pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
