GeForce 8800 GS vs Radeon R7 M265

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GS features a core clock frequency of 550 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 800 MHz. It also features a 192-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 65 nm design. It is comprised of 96 SPUs, 48 Texture Address Units, and 12 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 M265, which comes with clock speeds of 725 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce 8800 GS should be a bit faster than the Radeon R7 M265 in general. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GS 38400 MB/sec
Radeon R7 M265 32000 MB/sec
Difference: 6400 (20%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 8800 GS will be a lot (more or less 52%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R7 M265. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GS 26400 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 M265 17400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 9000 (52%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce 8800 GS will be a bit (more or less 14%) faster with regards to AA than the Radeon R7 M265, and also should be capable of handling higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GS 6600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 M265 5800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 800 (14%)

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 max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better 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 are processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory per 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 outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
