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 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this specific card. It features 3072 SPUs as well as 192 TAUs and 96 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce RTX 3060, which features core clock speeds of 1320 MHz on the GPU, and 1875 MHz on the (Unknown) MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 3584 SPUs along with 112 Texture Address Units and 48 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's 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 figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
