GeForce 8800 GTX vs Radeon R9 M265X

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTX makes use of a 90 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 575 MHz. The GDDR3 memory works at a frequency of 900 MHz on this specific model. It features 128 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 24 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 M265X, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 575 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a speed of 1125 MHz on this particular model. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

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