Radeon RX 6700 XT vs Radeon Vega Frontier Edition

Intro

The Radeon RX 6700 XT has a GPU core speed of 2321 MHz, and the (Unknown) MB of GDDR6 RAM runs at 2000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is made up of 2560 Stream Processors, 160 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1382 MHz. The HBM2 RAM works at a frequency of 1890 MHz on this particular card. It features 4096 SPUs along with 256 Texture Address Units and 64 ROPs.

Radeon RX 6700 XT 393216 MB/sec
Difference: 102236 (26%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6700 XT should be a small bit (more or less 5%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition. (explain)

Radeon RX 6700 XT 371360 Mtexels/sec
Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 353792 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 17568 (5%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 6700 XT is quite a bit (about 68%) more effective at anti-aliasing than the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, and also able to handle higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Radeon RX 6700 XT 148544 Mpixels/sec
Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 88448 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 60096 (68%)

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 max amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling 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 the video card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
