GeForce 8800 Ultra vs Radeon R7 360

Intro

The GeForce 8800 Ultra uses a 90 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 612 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1080 MHz on this model. It features 128 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 24 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 360, which has clock speeds of 1050 MHz on the GPU, and 1625 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 768 SPUs along with 48 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon R7 360 100 Watts
GeForce 8800 Ultra 171 Watts
Difference: 71 Watts (71%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R7 360 will be 0% quicker than the GeForce 8800 Ultra in general, because of its higher bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon R7 360 104000 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 Ultra 103680 MB/sec
Difference: 320 (0%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 360 is quite a bit (more or less 29%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce 8800 Ultra. (explain)

Radeon R7 360 50400 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 Ultra 39168 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 11232 (29%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R7 360 is the winner, but not by far. (explain)

Radeon R7 360 16800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 Ultra 14688 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2112 (14%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

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