GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) vs Radeon R5 M230

Intro

The GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) comes with core clock speeds of 450 MHz on the GPU, and 400 MHz on the 128 MB of DDR2 memory. It features 8 SPUs along with 4 TAUs and 2 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R5 M230, which has a clock frequency of 780 MHz and a DDR3 memory frequency of 1000 MHz. It also features a 64-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is made up of 320 SPUs, 20 TAUs, and 4 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total 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 applied 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 figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
