VS

GeForce RTX 2070 vs Radeon RX 6700 XT

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2070 has a GPU clock speed of 1410 MHz, and the 8192 MB of GDDR6 RAM runs at 1750 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 2304 SPUs, 144 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 6700 XT, which comes with GPU core speed of 2321 MHz, and (Unknown) MB of GDDR6 memory running at 2000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is made up of 2560 SPUs, 160 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce RTX 2070 175 Watts
Radeon RX 6700 XT 230 Watts
Difference: 55 Watts (31%)

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the GeForce RTX 2070 should in theory be a small bit superior to the Radeon RX 6700 XT overall. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2070 458752 MB/sec
Radeon RX 6700 XT 393216 MB/sec
Difference: 65536 (17%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6700 XT should be much (more or less 83%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce RTX 2070. (explain)

Radeon RX 6700 XT 371360 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 2070 203040 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 168320 (83%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6700 XT is superior to the GeForce RTX 2070, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon RX 6700 XT 148544 Mpixels/sec
GeForce RTX 2070 90240 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 58304 (65%)

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 maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core 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 processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
