Nvidia Titan X vs Radeon RX 6950 XT

Intro

The Nvidia Titan X features core speeds of 1417 MHz on the GPU, and 1251 MHz on the 12288 MB of GDDR5X RAM. It features 3584 SPUs as well as 224 Texture Address Units and 96 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 6950 XT, which has GPU core speed of 1925 MHz, and 16384 MB of GDDR6 memory set to run at 2250 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 5120 SPUs, 320 Texture Address Units, and 128 ROPs.

Nvidia Titan X 250 Watts
Radeon RX 6950 XT 335 Watts
Difference: 85 Watts (34%)

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the Radeon RX 6950 XT should in theory be a bit better than the Nvidia Titan X in general. (explain)

Radeon RX 6950 XT 589824 MB/sec
Nvidia Titan X 491520 MB/sec
Difference: 98304 (20%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6950 XT is quite a bit (approximately 94%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Nvidia Titan X. (explain)

Radeon RX 6950 XT 616000 Mtexels/sec
Nvidia Titan X 317408 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 298592 (94%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6950 XT is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon RX 6950 XT 246400 Mpixels/sec
Nvidia Titan X 136032 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 110368 (81%)

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 maximum amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This number is calculated 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 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 video card could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs 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 fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
