GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) vs Radeon R7 M260X

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) features a clock speed of 650 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 970 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 65 nm design. It features 128 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 M260X, which features core clock speeds of 825 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

As far as performance goes, the Radeon R7 M260X should in theory be a bit better than the GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) in general. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260X 64000 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 62080 MB/sec
Difference: 1920 (3%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) will be quite a bit (approximately 110%) more effective at AF than the Radeon R7 M260X. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 41600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 M260X 19800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 21800 (110%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 10400 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 M260X 6600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3800 (58%)

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: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better 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 in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock 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 processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
