GeForce 8800 Ultra vs Radeon R7 360

Intro

The GeForce 8800 Ultra comes with core clock speeds of 612 MHz on the GPU, and 1080 MHz on the 768 MB of GDDR3 memory. It features 128 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 360, which features a GPU core clock speed of 1050 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1625 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 768 Stream Processors, 48 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

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

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the Radeon R7 360 should in theory be a bit superior to the GeForce 8800 Ultra overall. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 360 should be much (about 29%) better 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 running with a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R7 360 is a better choice, 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: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core 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 is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
