GeForce GTX 590 vs GeForce RTX 2060

Intro

The GeForce GTX 590 comes with a GPU core speed of 607 MHz, and the 1536 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 855 MHz through a 384-bit bus. It also features 512 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 48 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce RTX 2060, which makes use of a 12 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1365 MHz. The GDDR6 memory is set to run at a frequency of 14000 MHz on this particular card. It features 1920 SPUs as well as 120 Texture Address Units and 48 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce RTX 2060 160 Watts
GeForce GTX 590 365 Watts
Difference: 205 Watts (128%)

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce RTX 2060, in theory, should perform just a bit faster than the GeForce GTX 590 overall. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2060 344064 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 590 328320 MB/sec
Difference: 15744 (5%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce RTX 2060 will be much (more or less 111%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 590. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2060 163800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 590 77696 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 86104 (111%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce RTX 2060 is superior to the GeForce GTX 590, but it probably won't make a huge difference. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2060 65520 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 590 58272 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 7248 (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 max amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
