GeForce 8800 Ultra vs Radeon R7 360

Intro

The GeForce 8800 Ultra has a GPU core speed of 612 MHz, and the 768 MB of GDDR3 RAM runs at 1080 MHz through a 384-bit bus. It also is made up of 128 Stream Processors, 64 Texture Address Units, and 24 ROPs.

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

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
