VS

GeForce RTX 2060 Super vs Radeon RX 6900 XT

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2060 Super uses a 12 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1470 MHz. The GDDR6 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this card. It features 2176 SPUs as well as 136 Texture Address Units and 64 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 6900 XT, which has a clock speed of 1825 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 2000 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 7 nm design. It features 5120 SPUs, 320 Texture Address Units, and 128 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines 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 is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
