GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) vs GeForce GTX 860M

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) has a clock speed of 650 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 970 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 65 nm design. It features 128 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 860M, which comes with GPU clock speed of 797 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1152 SPUs, 96 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out 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 filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many 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.
