Nvidia Titan Xp vs Radeon RX 6800 XT

Intro

The Nvidia Titan Xp has a core clock speed of 1582 MHz and a GDDR5X memory speed of 1426 MHz. It also uses a 384-bit bus, and uses a 16 nm design. It features 3840 SPUs, 240 TAUs, and 96 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 6800 XT, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1825 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM is set to run at a speed of 2000 MHz on this model. It features 4608 SPUs along with 288 TAUs and 128 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Nvidia Titan Xp 250 Watts
Radeon RX 6800 XT 300 Watts
Difference: 50 Watts (20%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Nvidia Titan Xp should perform a small bit faster than the Radeon RX 6800 XT overall. (explain)

Nvidia Titan Xp 560845 MB/sec
Radeon RX 6800 XT 524288 MB/sec
Difference: 36557 (7%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6800 XT is much (about 38%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Nvidia Titan Xp. (explain)

Radeon RX 6800 XT 525600 Mtexels/sec
Nvidia Titan Xp 379680 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 145920 (38%)

Pixel Rate

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

Radeon RX 6800 XT 233600 Mpixels/sec
Nvidia Titan Xp 151872 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 81728 (54%)

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 max amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better 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 the video card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
