GeForce GTX 1060 vs GeForce RTX 2070

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 comes with a GPU clock speed of 1506 MHz, and the 6144 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 2000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is made up of 1280 Stream Processors, 80 TAUs, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the GeForce RTX 2070, which features a GPU core clock speed of 1410 MHz, and 8192 MB of GDDR6 memory set to run at 14 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 2304 Stream Processors, 144 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better 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 per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics 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 video card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
