GeForce RTX 2060 vs Geforce GTX 690

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2060 comes with a GPU clock speed of 1365 MHz, and the 6144 MB of GDDR6 RAM is set to run at 14000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1920 Stream Processors, 120 TAUs, and 48 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Geforce GTX 690, which uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 915 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 1502 MHz on this particular model. It features 1536 SPUs along with 128 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

GeForce RTX 2060 344064 MB/sec
Difference: 40448 (12%)

Texel Rate

The Geforce GTX 690 is quite a bit (approximately 43%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce RTX 2060. (explain)

Geforce GTX 690 234240 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 163800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 70440 (43%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce RTX 2060 should be just a bit (approximately 12%) better at anti-aliasing than the Geforce GTX 690, and capable of handling higher screen resolutions more effectively. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2060 65520 Mpixels/sec
Geforce GTX 690 58560 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6960 (12%)

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: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number 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 is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
