GeForce RTX 2070 Super vs Radeon RX 6800

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2070 Super features a GPU core clock speed of 1605 MHz, and the 8192 MB of GDDR6 RAM runs at 1750 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 2560 Stream Processors, 160 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 6800, which features a clock frequency of 1700 MHz and a GDDR6 memory speed of 2000 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit bus, and uses a 7 nm design. It is made up of 3840 SPUs, 240 TAUs, and 96 ROPs.

GeForce RTX 2070 Super 458752 MB/sec
Difference: 65536 (14%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6800 is quite a bit (approximately 59%) more effective at AF than the GeForce RTX 2070 Super. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 408000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 2070 Super 256800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 151200 (59%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6800 is superior to the GeForce RTX 2070 Super, by a large margin. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 163200 Mpixels/sec
GeForce RTX 2070 Super 102720 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 60480 (59%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. 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 is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
