GeForce 8800 GT 1GB vs GeForce GTX 870M

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 1GB comes with a clock speed of 600 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 900 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 65 nm design. It is made up of 112 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the GeForce GTX 870M, which features GPU core speed of 941 MHz, and 3072 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1344 SPUs, 112 TAUs, and 24 Raster Operation Units.

GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 38400 (67%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 870M will be much (about 214%) more effective at AF than the GeForce 8800 GT 1GB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 870M 105392 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 71792 (214%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 870M is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 870M 22584 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 12984 (135%)

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: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

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