Radeon R9 Fury X vs Radeon RX 6950 XT

Intro

The Radeon R9 Fury X uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1050 MHz. The HBM RAM is set to run at a speed of 500 MHz on this specific card. It features 4096 SPUs as well as 256 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 6950 XT, which has clock speeds of 1925 MHz on the GPU, and 2250 MHz on the 16384 MB of GDDR6 memory. It features 5120 SPUs as well as 320 TAUs and 128 Rasterization Operator Units.

Radeon R9 Fury X 512000 MB/sec
Difference: 77824 (15%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6950 XT should be a lot (about 129%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R9 Fury X. (explain)

Radeon RX 6950 XT 616000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 Fury X 268800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 347200 (129%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6950 XT is the winner, by far. (explain)

Radeon RX 6950 XT 246400 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 Fury X 67200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 179200 (267%)

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 max amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
