GeForce GTX Titan X vs GeForce RTX 3060

Intro

The GeForce GTX Titan X makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1000 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 1750 MHz on this specific model. It features 3072 SPUs along with 192 Texture Address Units and 96 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce RTX 3060, which has a core clock frequency of 1320 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 1875 MHz. It also makes use of a 192-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 8 nm design. It is made up of 3584 SPUs, 112 Texture Address Units, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce RTX 3060 170 Watts
GeForce GTX Titan X 250 Watts
Difference: 80 Watts (47%)

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce RTX 3060 should in theory be a little bit faster than the GeForce GTX Titan X in general. (explain)

GeForce RTX 3060 368640 MB/sec
GeForce GTX Titan X 336000 MB/sec
Difference: 32640 (10%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX Titan X should be a lot (more or less 30%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce RTX 3060. (explain)

GeForce GTX Titan X 192000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 3060 147840 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 44160 (30%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX Titan X is much (approximately 52%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce RTX 3060, and should be able to handle higher resolutions better. (explain)

GeForce GTX Titan X 96000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce RTX 3060 63360 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 32640 (52%)

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 (measured in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This figure is worked out 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 handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs 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 fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
