GeForce RTX 2070 Super vs Radeon RX 6800 XT

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2070 Super features a GPU core speed of 1605 MHz, and the 8192 MB of GDDR6 RAM is set to run at 1750 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 2560 SPUs, 160 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 6800 XT, which uses a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1825 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM works at a speed of 2000 MHz on this specific model. It features 4608 SPUs along with 288 Texture Address Units and 128 Rasterization Operator Units.

GeForce RTX 2070 Super 215 Watts
Radeon RX 6800 XT 300 Watts
Difference: 85 Watts (40%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon RX 6800 XT should be 14% quicker than the GeForce RTX 2070 Super in general, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 XT 524288 MB/sec
GeForce RTX 2070 Super 458752 MB/sec
Difference: 65536 (14%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6800 XT is quite a bit (more or less 105%) more effective at AF than the GeForce RTX 2070 Super. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 XT 525600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 2070 Super 256800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 268800 (105%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 6800 XT is much (more or less 127%) better at FSAA than the GeForce RTX 2070 Super, and capable of handling higher screen resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 XT 233600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce RTX 2070 Super 102720 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 130880 (127%)

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: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
