GeForce RTX 2060 vs Radeon RX 6650 XT

Intro

The GeForce RTX 2060 comes with a core clock frequency of 1365 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 1750 MHz. It also uses a 192-bit memory bus, and uses a 12 nm design. It is comprised of 1920 SPUs, 120 Texture Address Units, and 48 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 6650 XT, which comes with GPU clock speed of 2055 MHz, and 8192 MB of GDDR6 memory running at 2190 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 2048 Stream Processors, 128 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce RTX 2060 160 Watts
Radeon RX 6650 XT 176 Watts
Difference: 16 Watts (10%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce RTX 2060 should be 20% faster than the Radeon RX 6650 XT overall, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2060 344064 MB/sec
Radeon RX 6650 XT 287072 MB/sec
Difference: 56992 (20%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6650 XT will be much (more or less 61%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce RTX 2060. (explain)

Radeon RX 6650 XT 263040 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 163800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 99240 (61%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6650 XT is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon RX 6650 XT 131520 Mpixels/sec
GeForce RTX 2060 65520 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 66000 (101%)

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 (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster 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 texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card 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 in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
