VS

GeForce RTX 2060 Super vs GeForce RTX 2070 Super

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2060 Super uses a 12 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1470 MHz. The GDDR6 memory runs at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this specific card. It features 2176 SPUs along with 136 TAUs and 64 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce RTX 2070 Super, which has a GPU core clock speed of 1605 MHz, and 8192 MB of GDDR6 RAM set to run at 1750 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 2560 Stream Processors, 160 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce RTX 2060 Super 175 Watts
GeForce RTX 2070 Super 215 Watts
Difference: 40 Watts (23%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have the exact same bandwidth, so theoretically they should perform the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce RTX 2070 Super should be much (approximately 28%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce RTX 2060 Super. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2070 Super 256800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 Super 199920 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 56880 (28%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce RTX 2070 Super is superior to the GeForce RTX 2060 Super, though not by far. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2070 Super 102720 Mpixels/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 Super 94080 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 8640 (9%)

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 maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel 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 max fill rate.

Where is the RTX 2080 Super for comparison? Can you add to the list? Thanks!
