GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER vs Radeon RX 6800 XT

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER uses a 12 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 1650 MHz. The GDDR6 memory runs at a frequency of 1937 MHz on this particular card. It features 3072 SPUs along with 192 TAUs and 64 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 6800 XT, which has a clock frequency of 1825 MHz and a GDDR6 memory speed of 2000 MHz. It also features a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 7 nm design. It is comprised of 4608 SPUs, 288 Texture Address Units, and 128 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core 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 one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
