Old. Not very old!
Like I said, you can at least eyeball the newer cards here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radeon_RX_5000_series#Desktop
I looked at the 85W desktop model as a reasonable successor.

You can see the Apple capabilities here:

Single TFlops and pixel rate are comparable, texture slightly behind. But, just like CPU, these numbers conceal as much as they tell us because so much depends on the HW algorithms that utilize them. ATI and nV have the advantage of longer experience in those algorithms, Apple has the advantage of starting from a cleaner slate and (apparently) very little NIH and a willingness to change large parts of the design substantially every year.

I guess over the next week many more comparisons of this sort across a range of functionality will appear.
