GeForce 8800 GT 512MB vs Radeon R7 M260

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 512MB has a clock frequency of 600 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 900 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 65 nm design. It features 112 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon R7 M260, which has GPU core speed of 715 MHz, and 2048 MB of DDR3 memory set to run at 1000 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is comprised of 384 Stream Processors, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 57600 MB/sec
Radeon R7 M260 16000 MB/sec
Difference: 41600 (260%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 8800 GT 512MB will be a lot (approximately 96%) better at AF than the Radeon R7 M260. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 M260 17160 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 16440 (96%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce 8800 GT 512MB is a better choice, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 M260 5720 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3880 (68%)

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 maximum amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported across 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 RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. 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 lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
