GeForce RTX 2060 vs Radeon R9 290X

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2060 comes with clock speeds of 1365 MHz on the GPU, and 14000 MHz on the 6144 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 1920 SPUs as well as 120 Texture Address Units and 48 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 290X, which features a clock speed of 800 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1250 MHz. It also features a 512-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 2816 SPUs, 176 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Texel Rate

The GeForce RTX 2060 should be just a bit (approximately 16%) more effective at AF than the Radeon R9 290X. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2060 163800 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 290X 140800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 23000 (16%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce RTX 2060 should be a lot (approximately 28%) better at AA than the Radeon R9 290X, and will be capable of handling higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2060 65520 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 290X 51200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 14320 (28%)

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 maximum amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

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