GeForce RTX 2080 vs Radeon RX 5700 XT

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2080 uses a 12 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1515 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM is set to run at a speed of 14 MHz on this particular model. It features 2944 SPUs as well as 184 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 5700 XT, which uses a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1605 MHz. The GDDR6 memory runs at a speed of 14000 MHz on this model. It features 2560 SPUs along with 160 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce RTX 2080 215 Watts
Radeon RX 5700 XT 225 Watts
Difference: 10 Watts (5%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have the exact same memory bandwidth, so in theory they should perform exactly the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce RTX 2080 will be just a bit (more or less 9%) better at AF than the Radeon RX 5700 XT. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2080 278760 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 XT 256800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 21960 (9%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon RX 5700 XT is the winner, but only just. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 XT 102720 Mpixels/sec
GeForce RTX 2080 96960 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5760 (6%)

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 largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount 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 this number, 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 amount of pixels the video card can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
