GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER vs Radeon RX Vega 56

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER uses a 12 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1650 MHz. The GDDR6 memory works at a speed of 1937 MHz on this particular model. It features 3072 SPUs as well as 192 TAUs and 64 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX Vega 56, which features a core clock speed of 1156 MHz and a HBM2 memory frequency 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.

Radeon RX Vega 56 419430 MB/sec
Difference: 88474 (21%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER will be a lot (more or less 22%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon RX Vega 56. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER 316800 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX Vega 56 258944 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 57856 (22%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, 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 texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card 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 Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few 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.
