GeForce RTX 2060 vs Radeon RX 6700 XT

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2060 comes with a GPU clock speed of 1365 MHz, and the 6144 MB of GDDR6 memory runs at 1750 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also features 1920 SPUs, 120 Texture Address Units, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 6700 XT, which features a core clock speed of 2321 MHz and a GDDR6 memory speed of 2000 MHz. It also makes use of a 192-bit bus, and uses a 7 nm design. It is made up of 2560 SPUs, 160 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce RTX 2060 160 Watts
Radeon RX 6700 XT 230 Watts
Difference: 70 Watts (44%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon RX 6700 XT should perform a small bit faster than the GeForce RTX 2060 overall. (explain)

Radeon RX 6700 XT 393216 MB/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 344064 MB/sec
Difference: 49152 (14%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6700 XT should be much (approximately 127%) better at AF than the GeForce RTX 2060. (explain)

Radeon RX 6700 XT 371360 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 163800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 207560 (127%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6700 XT is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon RX 6700 XT 148544 Mpixels/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 65520 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 83024 (127%)

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 max amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 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 high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. 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 fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
