GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB vs Radeon R7 M260X

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB comes with a GPU core clock speed of 513 MHz, and the 320 MB of GDDR3 memory is set to run at 792 MHz through a 320-bit bus. It also is comprised of 96 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 20 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 M260X, which comes with GPU clock speed of 825 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 384 Stream Processors, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Radeon R7 M260X 64000 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB 63360 MB/sec
Difference: 640 (1%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB is quite a bit (about 24%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R7 M260X. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB 24624 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 M260X 19800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 4824 (24%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB is a better choice, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB 10260 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 M260X 6600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3660 (55%)

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 max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it must 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, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total 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 in a 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. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
