GeForce RTX 2060 Super vs Radeon RX 5500

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2060 Super features clock speeds of 1470 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 2176 SPUs as well as 136 Texture Address Units and 64 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 5500, which comes with a core clock frequency of 1670 MHz and a GDDR6 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also features a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 7 nm design. It is made up of 1408 SPUs, 88 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Radeon RX 5500 229376 MB/sec
Difference: 229376 (100%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce RTX 2060 Super should be a lot (about 36%) more effective at AF than the Radeon RX 5500. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2060 Super 199920 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5500 146960 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 52960 (36%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce RTX 2060 Super is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
