GeForce RTX 2060 vs Radeon R9 295X2

Intro

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

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 295X2, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1018 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a speed of 1250 MHz on this specific card. It features 2816 SPUs along with 176 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

The Radeon R9 295X2 is much (about 119%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce RTX 2060. (explain)

Radeon R9 295X2 358336 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 163800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 194536 (119%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 295X2 should be quite a bit (more or less 99%) more effective at FSAA than the GeForce RTX 2060, and also should be capable of handling higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Radeon R9 295X2 130304 Mpixels/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 65520 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 64784 (99%)

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.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied 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 handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of 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 fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
