GeForce 8800 GT 256MB vs Radeon R5 M330

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 256MB has a clock frequency of 600 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 700 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 65 nm design. It is comprised of 112 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R5 M330, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1030 MHz. The DDR3 memory runs at a frequency of 900 MHz on this model. It features 320 SPUs along with 20 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce 8800 GT 256MB, in theory, should perform a lot faster than the Radeon R5 M330 in general. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GT 256MB 44800 MB/sec
Radeon R5 M330 14400 MB/sec
Difference: 30400 (211%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 8800 GT 256MB will be a lot (about 63%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon R5 M330. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GT 256MB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R5 M330 20600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 13000 (63%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce 8800 GT 256MB is a better choice, but it probably won't make a huge difference. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GT 256MB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R5 M330 8240 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1360 (17%)

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 maximum amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

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