In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 are marginally better than the AMD Radeon VII 16GB.

The GeForce RTX 2080 has a 115 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon VII 16GB, but the Radeon VII 16GB has 56 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce RTX 2080. As a result, the Radeon VII 16GB exhibits a 57.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce RTX 2080. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce RTX 2080 has a 115 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon VII 16GB, but the Radeon VII 16GB has 64 more Render Output Units than the GeForce RTX 2080. As a result, the Radeon VII 16GB exhibits a 82.2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce RTX 2080. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Radeon VII 16GB was released less than a year after the GeForce RTX 2080, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The Radeon VII 16GB has 8192 MB more video memory than the GeForce RTX 2080, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Radeon VII 16GB also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon VII 16GB has 576 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce RTX 2080, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon VII 16GB is massively better than the GeForce RTX 2080.

The Radeon VII 16GB has 3840 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 2080 has 2944. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon VII 16GB is 4368 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 is 5299. The GeForce RTX 2080 having 931 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon VII 16GB performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon VII 16GB transistor size technology is 5 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce RTX 2080. This means that the Radeon VII 16GB is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce RTX 2080.

The Radeon VII 16GB requires 295 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 2080 requires 215 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the GeForce RTX 2080, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the Radeon VII 16GB. The Radeon VII 16GB requires 80 Watts more than the GeForce RTX 2080 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Radeon VII 16GB may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce RTX 2080.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The AMD Radeon VII 16GB HBM2 is an Enthusiast Graphics Card based on the fifth (5.1) Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.
Architecture Vega 20 XT GPU offers support for second-gen HBM2 Memory, DirectX 12.0 and Open GL 4.5. The Vega 20 XT is the first ever 7nm gaming GPU and is the Full Variant of the GPU with 60 Compute Units activated, offering 3840 Shader Processing Units, 240 TMUs and 128 ROPs.
GPU The Central Unit is clocked at 1400MHz with a boost clock speed of 1750MHz.
Memory: Speed The GPU is equipped with 16GB of stacked HBM2 Memory and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 4096-bit memory interface, offering total memory bandwidth of 967.7 GB/s. HBM2 memory is clocked at 1000MHz base clock, or 2000 MHz effective speed.
Memory: Frame Buffer The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 16GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory but it makes the Radeon VII a great GPU for memory-intensive programs. The GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming. The 16GB HBM2 framebuffer is enough to prevent it bottlenecking performance in any AAA title at 4K.
Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 295W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors. Performance The Radeon VII 16GB is in in the same region of performance as the GeForce RTX 2080, although it does lack ray-tracing support. However, the ultra-wide HBM2 memory may offer the Radeon RX Vega an advantage at higher resolutions. System Suggestions AMD Radeon VII 16GB HBM2 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840 x2160 (4K). We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview The GeForce RTX 2080 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Turing Architecture. This card has also been rumoured to be called the GeForce GTX 2080 or the GeForce GTX 1180. Architecture It equips a Turing GPU Codenamed GT104 which is a First Gen Turing GPU and has 20 SM activated, offering 2944 Shader Processing Units, 184 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It also has 368 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. GPU Name: TU104-400A-A1 GPU The central unit runs at 1515MHz and goes up to 1800MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU accesses an 8GB frame buffer of Second Gen GDDR6 through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448 Gb/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 215W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with available 8-pin + 6-pin power connector. Performance Predicted performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 suggests it will be faster than the Geforce GTX 1080 Ti, making it a suitable graphics card for 4K gaming. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2080 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
