Radeon HD 5830 vs Radeon RX 6500 XT

Intro

The Radeon HD 5830 has a clock speed of 800 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1000 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It is made up of 1120(224x5) SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 6500 XT, which comes with a clock speed of 2200 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 2250 MHz. It also features a 64-bit bus, and uses a 6 nm design. It features 1024 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 6500 XT 107 Watts
Radeon HD 5830 175 Watts
Difference: 68 Watts (64%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon RX 6500 XT will be 15% quicker than the Radeon HD 5830 overall, due to its higher bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon RX 6500 XT 147456 MB/sec
Radeon HD 5830 128000 MB/sec
Difference: 19456 (15%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6500 XT should be quite a bit (more or less 214%) more effective at AF than the Radeon HD 5830. (explain)

Radeon RX 6500 XT 140800 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5830 44800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 96000 (214%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 6500 XT should be much (about 450%) more effective at FSAA than the Radeon HD 5830, and able to handle higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Radeon RX 6500 XT 70400 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 5830 12800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 57600 (450%)

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 maximum amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
