GeForce GTX 980 Ti vs GeForce RTX 2060

Intro

The GeForce GTX 980 Ti has a clock frequency of 1000 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also uses a 384-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 2816 SPUs, 176 TAUs, and 96 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the GeForce RTX 2060, which comes with a clock speed of 1365 MHz and a GDDR6 memory speed of 14000 MHz. It also features a 192-bit memory bus, and uses a 12 nm design. It is comprised of 1920 SPUs, 120 Texture Address Units, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, 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 most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
