GeForce RTX 2060 Super vs Radeon RX Vega 64

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2060 Super comes with core clock speeds of 1470 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR6 memory. It features 2176 SPUs as well as 136 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX Vega 64, which has a clock speed of 1247 MHz and a HBM2 memory frequency of 1890 MHz. It also features a 2048-bit bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It features 4096 SPUs, 256 TAUs, and 64 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce RTX 2060 Super 175 Watts
Radeon RX Vega 64 295 Watts
Difference: 120 Watts (69%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon RX Vega 64 should be 8% quicker than the GeForce RTX 2060 Super overall, because of its higher bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon RX Vega 64 495411 MB/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 Super 458752 MB/sec
Difference: 36659 (8%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX Vega 64 should be much (approximately 60%) more effective at AF than the GeForce RTX 2060 Super. (explain)

Radeon RX Vega 64 319232 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 Super 199920 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 119312 (60%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce RTX 2060 Super is a better choice, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2060 Super 94080 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX Vega 64 79808 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 14272 (18%)

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 information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core 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 processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
