VS

Radeon RX 5700 XT vs Radeon RX 6700 XT

Intro

The Radeon RX 5700 XT uses a 7 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1605 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this specific model. It features 2560 SPUs along with 160 TAUs and 64 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 6700 XT, which has GPU core speed of 2321 MHz, and (Unknown) MB of GDDR6 RAM set to run at 2000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is made up of 2560 SPUs, 160 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Radeon RX 5700 XT 225 Watts
Radeon RX 6700 XT 230 Watts
Difference: 5 Watts (2%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon RX 5700 XT will be 17% quicker than the Radeon RX 6700 XT overall, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6700 XT will be quite a bit (approximately 45%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon RX 5700 XT. (explain)

Radeon RX 6700 XT 371360 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 XT 256800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 114560 (45%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA 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 5700 XT 102720 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 45824 (45%)

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 max amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher 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 texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

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