GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB vs Radeon R9 M270X

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB has a GPU clock speed of 513 MHz, and the 320 MB of GDDR3 RAM runs at 792 MHz through a 320-bit bus. It also is made up of 96 Stream Processors, 48 Texture Address Units, and 20 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 M270X, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 725 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1125 MHz on this particular model. It features 640 SPUs along with 40 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R9 M270X should in theory be a little bit faster than the GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M270X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB 63360 MB/sec
Difference: 8640 (14%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M270X should be a small bit (approximately 18%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB. (explain)

Radeon R9 M270X 29000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB 24624 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 4376 (18%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M270X is the winner, but not by far. (explain)

Radeon R9 M270X 11600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB 10260 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1340 (13%)

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 (measured in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the 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 per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
