Technical specs

General performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU core base clock and boost clock speeds, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider their benchmark and gaming test results. Note that power consumption of some graphics cards can well exceed their nominal TDP, especially when overclocked.

Video outputs and ports

Types and number of video connectors present on the reviewed GPUs. As a rule, data in this section is precise only for desktop reference ones (so-called Founders Edition for NVIDIA chips). OEM manufacturers may change the number and type of output ports, while for notebook cards availability of certain video outputs ports depends on the laptop model rather than on the card itself.

Competitors of Xbox Series X GPU from NVIDIA

We believe that the nearest equivalent to Xbox Series X GPU from NVIDIA is TITAN Xp.

Here are some closest NVIDIA rivals to Xbox Series X GPU:

Advantages of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060

Lower power consumption (160W vs 200W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.

DLSS

Raytracing

VR Ready

G-SYNC (removes screen tearing by telling the display when to renew the image. Only works with G-SYNC compatible displays)

Vulkan (a contemporary API for graphics acceleration, based on now-discontinued Mantle)

Advantages of AMD Xbox Series X GPU

Much newer (10 November 2020 vs 6 January 2019)

Cheaper ($13 vs $776)

Wider memory bus (320 vs 192 bit)

More pipelines (3328 vs 1920)

Higher memory bandwidth (560 vs 336 GB/s)

Finer manufacturing process technology (7 vs 12 nm)
