GeForce RTX 2070 vs Radeon RX 6700 XT

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2070 uses a 12 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 1410 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM works at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this particular model. It features 2304 SPUs along with 144 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 6700 XT, which makes use of a 7 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 2321 MHz. The GDDR6 memory works at a frequency of 2000 MHz on this particular model. It features 2560 SPUs along with 160 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock 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 applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
