VS

GeForce RTX 2060 Super vs Radeon RX 6700 XT

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2060 Super comes with clock speeds of 1470 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 8192 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 2176 SPUs along with 136 Texture Address Units and 64 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 6700 XT, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 2321 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM works at a speed of 2000 MHz on this card. It features 2560 SPUs as well as 160 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher 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 in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
