GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER vs GeForce RTX 3080

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER has clock speeds of 1650 MHz on the GPU, and 1937 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR6 memory. It features 3072 SPUs as well as 192 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce RTX 3080, which uses a 8 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1440 MHz. The GDDR6X memory runs at a frequency of 1188 MHz on this specific card. It features 8704 SPUs as well as 272 TAUs and 96 ROPs.

GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER 507904 MB/sec
Difference: 270643 (53%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce RTX 3080 is much (approximately 24%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER. (explain)

GeForce RTX 3080 391680 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER 316800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 74880 (24%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce RTX 3080 is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling 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 the video card could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
