GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) vs Radeon R9 M295X

Intro

The GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) has clock speeds of 450 MHz on the GPU, and 400 MHz on the 128 MB of DDR2 RAM. It features 8 SPUs along with 4 TAUs and 2 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon R9 M295X, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 750 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 1375 MHz on this card. It features 2048 SPUs as well as 128 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If 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 can be processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
