GeForce RTX 2060 Super vs Radeon RX Vega 56

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2060 Super comes with a core clock frequency of 1470 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 14000 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 12 nm design. It is comprised of 2176 SPUs, 136 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX Vega 56, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1156 MHz. The HBM2 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1600 MHz on this specific model. It features 3584 SPUs along with 224 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Radeon RX Vega 56 419430 MB/sec
Difference: 39322 (9%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX Vega 56 is a lot (about 30%) more effective at AF than the GeForce RTX 2060 Super. (explain)

Radeon RX Vega 56 258944 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 Super 199920 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 59024 (30%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce RTX 2060 Super will be quite a bit (more or less 27%) faster with regards to AA than the Radeon RX Vega 56, and also should be capable of handling higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2060 Super 94080 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX Vega 56 73984 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 20096 (27%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
