VS

Radeon RX 5600 XT vs Radeon RX 6700 XT

Intro

The Radeon RX 5600 XT has a GPU core clock speed of 1375 MHz, and the 6144 MB of GDDR6 memory is set to run at 1500 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also features 2304 Stream Processors, 144 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 6700 XT, which has a core clock speed of 2321 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 2000 MHz. It also features a 192-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 7 nm design. It is comprised of 2560 SPUs, 160 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics 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 maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure 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 filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
