GeForce 8800 GTX vs Radeon R7 360

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTX features a clock frequency of 575 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 900 MHz. It also features a 384-bit bus, and uses a 90 nm design. It is made up of 128 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 24 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 360, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1050 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1625 MHz on this particular card. It features 768 SPUs as well as 48 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics 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 amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
