VS

Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition vs Radeon RX 6700 XT

Intro

The Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition features a GPU clock speed of 1680 MHz, and the 8096 MB of GDDR6 memory is set to run at 1750 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 2560 Stream Processors, 160 TAUs, and 64 ROPs.

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

Theoretically, the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition should be a little bit faster than the Radeon RX 6700 XT overall. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition 458752 MB/sec
Radeon RX 6700 XT 393216 MB/sec
Difference: 65536 (17%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6700 XT will be much (about 38%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition. (explain)

Radeon RX 6700 XT 371360 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition 268800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 102560 (38%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6700 XT is superior to the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon RX 6700 XT 148544 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition 107520 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 41024 (38%)

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: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total 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 in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card can possibly record 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 - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
