GeForce GTX Titan Black vs GeForce RTX 3060

Intro

The GeForce GTX Titan Black comes with a clock frequency of 889 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1750 MHz. It also features a 384-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is made up of 2880 SPUs, 240 Texture Address Units, and 48 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce RTX 3060, which features core speeds of 1320 MHz on the GPU, and 1875 MHz on the (Unknown) MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 3584 SPUs as well as 112 TAUs and 48 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

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

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce RTX 3060, in theory, should be a bit faster than the GeForce GTX Titan Black overall. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX Titan Black will be much (more or less 44%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce RTX 3060. (explain)

GeForce GTX Titan Black 213360 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 3060 147840 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 65520 (44%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce RTX 3060 is the winner, by far. (explain)

GeForce RTX 3060 63360 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX Titan Black 42672 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 20688 (48%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can 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 colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
