GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) vs Radeon R7 360

Intro

The GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) has a core clock frequency of 450 MHz and a DDR2 memory speed of 400 MHz. It also features a 64-bit bus, and uses a 80 nm design. It is comprised of 8 SPUs, 4 Texture Address Units, and 2 ROPs.

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

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 can be applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core 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 is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
