VS

Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition vs Radeon RX 6900 XT

Intro

The Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1680 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM runs at a speed of 1750 MHz on this card. It features 2560 SPUs along with 160 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 6900 XT, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1825 MHz. The GDDR6 memory runs at a frequency of 2000 MHz on this specific model. It features 5120 SPUs as well as 320 TAUs and 128 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition 235 Watts
Radeon RX 6900 XT 300 Watts
Difference: 65 Watts (28%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon RX 6900 XT is 14% faster than the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition in general, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

Radeon RX 6900 XT 524288 MB/sec
Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition 458752 MB/sec
Difference: 65536 (14%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6900 XT will be a lot (about 117%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition. (explain)

Radeon RX 6900 XT 584000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition 268800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 315200 (117%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6900 XT is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon RX 6900 XT 233600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition 107520 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 126080 (117%)

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 largest amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster 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 texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
