GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB vs Radeon R9 M265X

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB uses a 90 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 513 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM works at a frequency of 792 MHz on this card. It features 96 SPUs as well as 48 Texture Address Units and 20 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 M265X, which comes with core clock speeds of 575 MHz on the GPU, and 1125 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R9 M265X should theoretically perform a little bit faster than the GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB overall. (explain)

Radeon R9 M265X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB 63360 MB/sec
Difference: 8640 (14%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB should be a bit (approximately 7%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R9 M265X. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB 24624 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M265X 23000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 1624 (7%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB is the winner, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB 10260 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M265X 9200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1060 (12%)

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 (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

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