GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB vs GeForce GTX 860M

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB features a GPU core speed of 513 MHz, and the 320 MB of GDDR3 memory is set to run at 792 MHz through a 320-bit bus. It also is comprised of 96 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 20 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 860M, which uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 797 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a speed of 1000 MHz on this specific model. It features 1152 SPUs along with 96 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

In theory, the GeForce GTX 860M should be 1% quicker than the GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB in general, due to its higher bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce GTX 860M 64000 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB 63360 MB/sec
Difference: 640 (1%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 860M is much (approximately 211%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 860M 76512 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB 24624 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 51888 (211%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 860M is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 860M 12752 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB 10260 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2492 (24%)

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 max amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core 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 applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
