GeForce GTX 1060 vs GeForce RTX 2070

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 has a clock speed of 1506 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 2000 MHz. It also uses a 192-bit bus, and uses a 16 nm design. It features 1280 SPUs, 80 Texture Address Units, and 48 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce RTX 2070, which comes with core clock speeds of 1410 MHz on the GPU, and 14 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 2304 SPUs along with 144 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

GeForce GTX 1060 196608 MB/sec
Difference: 262144 (133%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce RTX 2070 will be a lot (more or less 69%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 1060. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2070 203040 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1060 120480 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 82560 (69%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce RTX 2070 is superior to the GeForce GTX 1060, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2070 90240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 1060 72288 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 17952 (25%)

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: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
