GeForce RTX 2060 vs Radeon RX Vega 56

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2060 makes use of a 12 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 1365 MHz. The GDDR6 memory works at a frequency of 14000 MHz on this particular model. It features 1920 SPUs along with 120 TAUs and 48 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX Vega 56, which comes with GPU core speed of 1156 MHz, and 8192 MB of HBM2 RAM set to run at 1600 MHz through a 2048-bit bus. It also features 3584 Stream Processors, 224 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation 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

The Radeon RX Vega 56, in theory, should perform quite a bit faster than the GeForce RTX 2060 in general. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX Vega 56 is quite a bit (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

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon RX Vega 56 is a better choice, but not by far. (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: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, 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 can be processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
