GeForce RTX 2060 vs Radeon RX Vega 56

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2060 has core clock speeds of 1365 MHz on the GPU, and 14000 MHz on the 6144 MB of GDDR6 memory. It features 1920 SPUs as well as 120 Texture Address Units and 48 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX Vega 56, which uses a 14 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1156 MHz. The HBM2 RAM runs at a frequency of 1600 MHz on this particular card. It features 3584 SPUs along with 224 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce RTX 2060 160 Watts
Radeon RX Vega 56 210 Watts
Difference: 50 Watts (31%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon RX Vega 56 will be 22% faster than the GeForce RTX 2060 in general, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

Radeon RX Vega 56 419430 MB/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 344064 MB/sec
Difference: 75366 (22%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX Vega 56 will be much (approximately 58%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce RTX 2060. (explain)

Radeon RX Vega 56 258944 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 163800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 95144 (58%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX Vega 56 should be a bit (about 13%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce RTX 2060, and should be able to handle higher resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon RX Vega 56 73984 Mpixels/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 65520 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 8464 (13%)

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 maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, 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 most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
