GeForce 8800 GT 512MB vs Radeon HD 5670


The GeForce 8800 GT 512MB uses a 65 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 600 MHz. The GDDR3 memory works at a speed of 900 MHz on this specific card. It features 112 SPUs along with 56 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 5670, which makes use of a 40 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 775 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1000 MHz on this specific model. It features 400(80x5) SPUs along with 20 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
