Radeon RX 5700 vs Radeon RX 6700 XT

Intro

The Radeon RX 5700 features a core clock frequency of 1465 MHz and a GDDR6 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 7 nm design. It features 2304 SPUs, 144 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 6700 XT, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 2321 MHz. The GDDR6 memory runs at a speed of 2000 MHz on this specific card. It features 2560 SPUs as well as 160 TAUs and 64 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 5700 180 Watts
Radeon RX 6700 XT 230 Watts
Difference: 50 Watts (28%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon RX 5700 is 17% faster than the Radeon RX 6700 XT in general, due to its greater data rate. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6700 XT is much (approximately 76%) more effective at AF than the Radeon RX 5700. (explain)

Radeon RX 6700 XT 371360 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 210960 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 160400 (76%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6700 XT is superior to the Radeon RX 5700, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon RX 6700 XT 148544 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 93760 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 54784 (58%)

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 information (in units of MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. 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 potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
