GeForce 8800 Ultra vs Radeon R7 360

Intro

The GeForce 8800 Ultra has a GPU core clock speed of 612 MHz, and the 768 MB of GDDR3 RAM is set to run at 1080 MHz through a 384-bit bus. It also is comprised of 128 Stream Processors, 64 TAUs, and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 360, which comes with a core clock frequency of 1050 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1625 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 768 SPUs, 48 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
