GeForce RTX 2060 Super vs Radeon RX Vega 56

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2060 Super makes use of a 12 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1470 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM runs at a speed of 14000 MHz on this particular model. It features 2176 SPUs along with 136 Texture Address Units and 64 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX Vega 56, which comes with a clock frequency of 1156 MHz and a HBM2 memory speed of 1600 MHz. It also uses a 2048-bit bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It is comprised of 3584 SPUs, 224 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

GeForce RTX 2060 Super 175 Watts
Radeon RX Vega 56 210 Watts
Difference: 35 Watts (20%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce RTX 2060 Super should be a bit faster than the Radeon RX Vega 56 overall. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2060 Super 458752 MB/sec
Radeon RX Vega 56 419430 MB/sec
Difference: 39322 (9%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX Vega 56 should be much (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

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce RTX 2060 Super is a better choice, and very much so. (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 max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock 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 in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
