VS

Radeon RX 5600 XT vs Radeon RX 6700 XT

Intro

The Radeon RX 5600 XT makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1375 MHz. The GDDR6 memory is set to run at a speed of 1500 MHz on this particular card. It features 2304 SPUs as well as 144 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 6700 XT, which features GPU core speed of 2321 MHz, and (Unknown) MB of GDDR6 memory running at 2000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also features 2560 SPUs, 160 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 5600 XT 160 Watts
Radeon RX 6700 XT 230 Watts
Difference: 70 Watts (44%)

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the Radeon RX 6700 XT should in theory be a little bit superior to the Radeon RX 5600 XT in general. (explain)

Radeon RX 6700 XT 393216 MB/sec
Radeon RX 5600 XT 344064 MB/sec
Difference: 49152 (14%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6700 XT should be a lot (about 88%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon RX 5600 XT. (explain)

Radeon RX 6700 XT 371360 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5600 XT 198000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 173360 (88%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6700 XT is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon RX 6700 XT 148544 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 5600 XT 88000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 60544 (69%)

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 (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is worked out 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 texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes 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 - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
