AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition Watercooled vs NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti
Comparison of graphics card architecture, market segment, value for money and other general parameters.
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.
Compatibility, dimensions and requirements
Information on compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility).
Parameters of memory installed: its type, size, bus, clock and resulting bandwidth. Note that GPUs integrated into processors have no dedicated VRAM and use a shared part of system RAM.
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 GeForce RTX 2080 Ti from AMD
We believe that the nearest equivalent to GeForce RTX 2080 Ti from AMD is Radeon RX 6800, which is slower by 5% and lower by 2 positions in our rating.
Here are some closest AMD rivals to GeForce RTX 2080 Ti:
Advantages of AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition Watercooled
Wider memory bus (2048 vs 352 bit)
Advantages of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti
Much newer (27 August 2018 vs 13 July 2017)
More pipelines (4352 vs 4096)
Higher memory bandwidth (616 vs 483.8 GB/s)
Finer manufacturing process technology (12 vs 14 nm)
Lower power consumption (250W vs 375W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.
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)
So, which one is the better GPU?
