VS

GeForce RTX 2080 vs Radeon RX 5700

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2080 comes with a core clock speed of 1515 MHz and a GDDR6 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit bus, and uses a 12 nm design. It is made up of 2944 SPUs, 184 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 5700, which features a GPU core clock speed of 1465 MHz, and 8096 MB of GDDR6 memory set to run at 1750 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 2304 SPUs, 144 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 5700 180 Watts
GeForce RTX 2080 215 Watts
Difference: 35 Watts (19%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have the exact same bandwidth, so in theory they should have the same performance. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce RTX 2080 should be a lot (more or less 32%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon RX 5700. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2080 278760 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 210960 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 67800 (32%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce RTX 2080 will be a little bit (more or less 3%) more effective at anti-aliasing than the Radeon RX 5700, and should be able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2080 96960 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 5700 93760 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3200 (3%)

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 MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be 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 one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
