GeForce RTX 2080 vs Radeon Vega Frontier Edition

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2080 comes with core speeds of 1515 MHz on the GPU, and 14 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 2944 SPUs along with 184 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, which has a core clock frequency of 1382 MHz and a HBM2 memory frequency of 1890 MHz. It also uses a 2048-bit bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It is comprised of 4096 SPUs, 256 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce RTX 2080 215 Watts
Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 300 Watts
Difference: 85 Watts (40%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition should perform just a bit faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 in general. (explain)

Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 495452 MB/sec
GeForce RTX 2080 458752 MB/sec
Difference: 36700 (8%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is quite a bit (approximately 27%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce RTX 2080. (explain)

Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 353792 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 2080 278760 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 75032 (27%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce RTX 2080 is the winner, but not by far. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2080 96960 Mpixels/sec
Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 88448 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 8512 (10%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
