GeForce GTX 1060 vs GeForce RTX 2070

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 uses a 16 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1506 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a speed of 2000 MHz on this specific card. It features 1280 SPUs as well as 80 Texture Address Units and 48 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce RTX 2070, which has a clock frequency of 1410 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 14 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and uses a 12 nm design. It is comprised of 2304 SPUs, 144 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
