GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER vs GeForce RTX 3070

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER has clock speeds of 1650 MHz on the GPU, and 1937 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 3072 SPUs as well as 192 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce RTX 3070, which uses a 8 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1500 MHz. The GDDR6 memory is set to run at a speed of 1750 MHz on this card. It features 5888 SPUs as well as 184 Texture Address Units and 96 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce RTX 3070 220 Watts
GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER 250 Watts
Difference: 30 Watts (14%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER should be -100% quicker than the GeForce RTX 3070 in general, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER 507904 MB/sec
GeForce RTX 3070 (Unknown) MB/sec
Difference: 507904 (-100%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER is a small bit (approximately 15%) more effective at AF than the GeForce RTX 3070. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER 316800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 3070 276000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 40800 (15%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce RTX 3070 is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce RTX 3070 144000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER 105600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 38400 (36%)

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: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the better 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 can be processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video 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 maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
