VS

GeForce RTX 2070 Super vs Radeon RX 6800 XT

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2070 Super has a core clock speed of 1605 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 1750 MHz. It also features a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 12 nm design. It is made up of 2560 SPUs, 160 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 6800 XT, which has GPU core speed of 1825 MHz, and 16384 MB of GDDR6 RAM running at 2000 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 4608 Stream Processors, 288 TAUs, and 128 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the faster 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 can be applied in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

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