GeForce RTX 2060 Super vs Radeon RX 6800

Intro

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

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 6800, which comes with a clock speed of 1700 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 2000 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit bus, and uses a 7 nm design. It features 3840 SPUs, 240 Texture Address Units, and 96 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce RTX 2060 Super 175 Watts
Radeon RX 6800 250 Watts
Difference: 75 Watts (43%)

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon RX 6800 should in theory be a little bit faster than the GeForce RTX 2060 Super in general. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 524288 MB/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 Super 458752 MB/sec
Difference: 65536 (14%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6800 will be a lot (about 104%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce RTX 2060 Super. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 408000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 Super 199920 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 208080 (104%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6800 is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 163200 Mpixels/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 Super 94080 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 69120 (73%)

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 (in units of MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core 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 also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
