GeForce RTX 2060 vs Radeon R9 390 8G

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2060 comes with a clock frequency of 1365 MHz and a GDDR6 memory speed of 14000 MHz. It also uses a 192-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 12 nm design. It is comprised of 1920 SPUs, 120 TAUs, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 390 8G, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1000 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 1500 MHz on this particular card. It features 2560 SPUs along with 160 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

GeForce RTX 2060 344064 MB/sec
Difference: 39936 (12%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce RTX 2060 is a small bit (approximately 2%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R9 390 8G. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2060 163800 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 390 8G 160000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 3800 (2%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce RTX 2060 is superior to the Radeon R9 390 8G, but it probably won't make a huge difference. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2060 65520 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 390 8G 64000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1520 (2%)

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 data (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's 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 memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the 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 maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few 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.
