GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER vs GeForce RTX 3070 Ti

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER has a GPU core clock speed of 1650 MHz, and the 8192 MB of GDDR6 memory runs at 1937 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 3072 SPUs, 192 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, which has a core clock frequency of 1575 MHz and a GDDR6X memory speed of 1188 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 8 nm design. It is made up of 6144 SPUs, 192 Texture Address Units, and 96 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to its 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 clock speed. 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 potential to reach the max fill rate.
