GeForce RTX 2060 vs Radeon VII

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2060 makes use of a 12 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1365 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this particular card. It features 1920 SPUs along with 120 Texture Address Units and 48 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon VII, which comes with core speeds of 1400 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 16384 MB of HBM2 memory. It features 3840 SPUs along with 240 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce RTX 2060 160 Watts
Radeon VII 295 Watts
Difference: 135 Watts (84%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the Radeon VII should perform a lot faster than the GeForce RTX 2060 in general. (explain)

Radeon VII 1048576 MB/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 344064 MB/sec
Difference: 704512 (205%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon VII should be much (approximately 105%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce RTX 2060. (explain)

Radeon VII 336000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 163800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 172200 (105%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon VII should be much (about 37%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce RTX 2060, and also will be capable of handling higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Radeon VII 89600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 65520 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 24080 (37%)

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 max amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the 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 number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called 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, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
