Radeon R9 Fury X vs Radeon RX 6700 XT

Intro

The Radeon R9 Fury X comes with core clock speeds of 1050 MHz on the GPU, and 500 MHz on the 4096 MB of HBM memory. It features 4096 SPUs as well as 256 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 6700 XT, which has a clock speed of 2321 MHz and a GDDR6 memory speed of 2000 MHz. It also uses a 192-bit bus, and makes use of a 7 nm design. It is made up of 2560 SPUs, 160 TAUs, and 64 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 6700 XT 230 Watts
Radeon R9 Fury X 275 Watts
Difference: 45 Watts (20%)

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the Radeon R9 Fury X should in theory be quite a bit superior to the Radeon RX 6700 XT in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 Fury X 512000 MB/sec
Radeon RX 6700 XT 393216 MB/sec
Difference: 118784 (30%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6700 XT should be much (more or less 38%) more effective at AF than the Radeon R9 Fury X. (explain)

Radeon RX 6700 XT 371360 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 Fury X 268800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 102560 (38%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6700 XT is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon RX 6700 XT 148544 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 Fury X 67200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 81344 (121%)

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 largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, 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, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many 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.
