GeForce RTX 2070 vs Radeon RX 6900 XT

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2070 makes use of a 12 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1410 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this model. It features 2304 SPUs along with 144 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 6900 XT, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1825 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM works at a speed of 2000 MHz on this specific card. It features 5120 SPUs as well as 320 Texture Address Units and 128 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at 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 that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
