GeForce RTX 2070 Super vs Geforce GTX 690

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2070 Super features core speeds of 1605 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 2560 SPUs as well as 160 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Geforce GTX 690, which features core clock speeds of 915 MHz on the GPU, and 1502 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 1536 SPUs along with 128 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Geforce GTX 690 384512 MB/sec
Difference: 74240 (19%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce RTX 2070 Super is just a bit (more or less 10%) more effective at texture filtering than the Geforce GTX 690. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2070 Super 256800 Mtexels/sec
Geforce GTX 690 234240 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 22560 (10%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce RTX 2070 Super should be much (about 75%) better at FSAA than the Geforce GTX 690, and also should be able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2070 Super 102720 Mpixels/sec
Geforce GTX 690 58560 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 44160 (75%)

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.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip 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 Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
