In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super Emtek Xenon TurboJet OC 8GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 7950 3-way Crossfire.

The RTX 2060 has a 670 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 7950, but the HD 7950 has 200 more Texture Mapping Units than the RTX 2060. As a result, the HD 7950 exhibits a 68.9 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 670 MHz higher core clock speed but 32 fewer Render Output Units than the HD 7950. The lower ROP count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the RTX 2060 manages to provide 17.3 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 HD 7950, 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 HD 7950 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 HD 7950 has 1024 MB more video memory than the RTX 2060, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the HD 7950 also has superior memory performance overall.

The HD 7950 has 272 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RTX 2060, which means that the memory performance of the HD 7950 is massively better than the RTX 2060.

The GeForce RTX 2060 Super Emtek Xenon TurboJet OC 8GB has 2176 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7950 3-way Crossfire has 5376. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 2060 is 3982 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7950 is 3656. The RTX 2060 having 326 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the HD 7950 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The RTX 2060 transistor size technology is 16 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 7950. This means that the RTX 2060 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 7950.

The GeForce RTX 2060 Super Emtek Xenon TurboJet OC 8GB requires 215 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 7950 3-way Crossfire requires 540 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the RTX 2060. The HD 7950 requires 325 Watts more than the RTX 2060 to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD 7950 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RTX 2060.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The GeForce RTX 2060 Super Emtek Xenon TurboJet OC 8GB is a mid to high-range GeForce 20 Series graphics card and considered a great price to performance graphics card based on the Turing architecture. This is the 'Super' variant of the RTX 2060 and utilises a cut-down version of the RTX 2070 GPU. 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 Super Emtek Xenon TurboJet OC 8GB supports real-time ray-tracing and excels at 1080p and 1440p screen resolutions. GPU It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU106-410-A which has 2176 Shader Processing Units, 136 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1470 MHz and goes up to 1830 MHz in Boost mode. Memory The GPU accesses an 8GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR6 memory through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. This provides total memory bandwidth of 448 GB/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 215W, it requires at least a 550W PSU with an 8+6-pin power connector. System Suggestions The GeForce RTX 2060 Super Emtek Xenon TurboJet OC 8GB 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.Radeon HD 7950 3-way Crossfire is a solution of three Radeon HD 7950 put together using AMD'S Crossfire technology.
Check the page of Radeon HD 7950 to know more about its chip.
Crossfire relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is somewhat superior to a single Radeon HD 7990 performing by itself it might be worse (depending on whether or not the 3D game supports crossfire or in the graphics driver) than a single Radeon HD 7950. Expect this combination to draw up to 540 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
