In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 4GB GDDR5 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom GLH Edition.

The RTX 2060 has a 385 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 780, but the GTX 780 has 72 more Texture Mapping Units than the RTX 2060. As a result, the GTX 780 exhibits a 24.4 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the RTX 2060. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RTX 2060 has a 385 MHz higher core clock speed but 1 fewer Render Output Units than the GTX 780. The lower ROP count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the RTX 2060 manages to provide 17.2 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RTX 2060 was released over three years more recently than the GTX 780, and so the RTX 2060 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 780 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 RTX 2060 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 780, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GTX 780 has superior memory performance.

The GTX 780 has 144.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RTX 2060, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 780 is massively better than the RTX 2060.

The GeForce RTX 2060 4GB GDDR5 has 1920 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom GLH Edition has 2304. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 2060 is 3226 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 780 is 2380. The RTX 2060 having 846 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX 780 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The RTX 2060 transistor size technology is 16 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 780. This means that the RTX 2060 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 780.

The GeForce RTX 2060 4GB GDDR5 requires 150 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom GLH Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RTX 2060 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 780. The GTX 780 has been recommended a PSU with 150 Watts more than the RTX 2060. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 780 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RTX 2060.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview GeForce RTX 2060 4GB GDDR5 is a mid-range GeForce 20 Series graphics card and considered a great price to performance graphics card based on the Turing architecture. Architecture The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. The GeForce RTX 2060 does support real-time ray-tracing and excels at 1080p screen resolution. GPU It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU106 which has 1920 Shader Processing Units, 120 TMUs and 47 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1365 MHz and goes up to 1680 MHz, in Boost mode. Memory The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of slower GDDR5 memory compared to the GDDR6 model, running through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1500MHz, or 14GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with an 8-pin power connector. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2060 4GB GDDR5 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a mid-range Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.GeForce GTX 780 Gainward Phantom GLH Edition is a special edition of the high-end GeForce GTX 780.
This edition comes with a custom triple fan cooling solution which by itself should allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 780 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Also, it has been overclocked out of the box from 863MHz to 980MHz while its boost clock is now of 1033MHz. The memory clock was also increased to 1550MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 8% performance boost when compared to the reference card.
