VS

GeForce RTX 2060 vs Radeon RX 6700 XT

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2060 comes with clock speeds of 1365 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 6144 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 1920 SPUs as well as 120 Texture Address Units and 48 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 6700 XT, which comes with GPU clock speed of 2321 MHz, and (Unknown) MB of GDDR6 RAM running at 2000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is comprised of 2560 Stream Processors, 160 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

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

The Radeon RX 6700 XT, in theory, should be a little 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 will be a lot (about 127%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce RTX 2060. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 6700 XT is much (more or less 127%) faster with regards to anti-aliasing than the GeForce RTX 2060, and also should be able to handle higher resolutions while still performing well. (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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. 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 output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
