VS

GeForce RTX 2060 Super vs Radeon RX 6900 XT

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2060 Super comes with a GPU core speed of 1470 MHz, and the 8192 MB of GDDR6 memory is set to run at 1750 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 2176 Stream Processors, 136 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 6900 XT, which comes with GPU clock speed of 1825 MHz, and 16384 MB of GDDR6 RAM set to run at 2000 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 5120 SPUs, 320 TAUs, and 128 Raster Operation Units.

GeForce RTX 2060 Super 458752 MB/sec
Difference: 65536 (14%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6900 XT will be a lot (more or less 192%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce RTX 2060 Super. (explain)

Radeon RX 6900 XT 584000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 Super 199920 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 384080 (192%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6900 XT is the winner, by far. (explain)

Radeon RX 6900 XT 233600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 Super 94080 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 139520 (148%)

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 information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, 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 of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core 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 fill rate also depends on quite a few 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.
