GeForce 8800 GTX vs Radeon R7 360

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTX comes with a GPU core clock speed of 575 MHz, and the 768 MB of GDDR3 memory runs at 900 MHz through a 384-bit bus. It also is made up of 128 Stream Processors, 64 Texture Address Units, and 24 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 360, which has GPU clock speed of 1050 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1625 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 768 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon R7 360 100 Watts
GeForce 8800 GTX 155 Watts
Difference: 55 Watts (55%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R7 360 should be a small bit faster than the GeForce 8800 GTX overall. (explain)

Radeon R7 360 104000 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 GTX 86400 MB/sec
Difference: 17600 (20%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 360 should be quite a bit (about 37%) more effective at AF than the GeForce 8800 GTX. (explain)

Radeon R7 360 50400 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 GTX 36800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 13600 (37%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon R7 360 is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon R7 360 16800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GTX 13800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3000 (22%)

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 data (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher 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 applied in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated 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 output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
