GeForce RTX 2070 vs Radeon RX Vega 56

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2070 has a core clock frequency of 1410 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 14 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 12 nm design. It is made up of 2304 SPUs, 144 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX Vega 56, which comes with clock speeds of 1156 MHz on the GPU, and 1600 MHz on the 8192 MB of HBM2 RAM. It features 3584 SPUs as well as 224 TAUs and 64 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of 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, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better 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 a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
