Radeon Pro Duo vs Radeon RX 6950 XT

Intro

The Radeon Pro Duo features a core clock frequency of 1000 MHz and a HBM memory speed of 500 MHz. It also makes use of a 4096-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 4096 SPUs, 256 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 6950 XT, which features a core clock speed of 1925 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 2250 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 7 nm design. It is made up of 5120 SPUs, 320 Texture Address Units, and 128 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 6950 XT 335 Watts
Radeon Pro Duo 350 Watts
Difference: 15 Watts (4%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon Pro Duo should be 74% quicker than the Radeon RX 6950 XT in general, because of its higher bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon Pro Duo 1024000 MB/sec
Radeon RX 6950 XT 589824 MB/sec
Difference: 434176 (74%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6950 XT is a little bit (approximately 20%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon Pro Duo. (explain)

Radeon RX 6950 XT 616000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon Pro Duo 512000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 104000 (20%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6950 XT is superior to the Radeon Pro Duo, by a large margin. (explain)

Radeon RX 6950 XT 246400 Mpixels/sec
Radeon Pro Duo 128000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 118400 (93%)

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.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

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