GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) vs Radeon HD 4830 512MB

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) features core speeds of 650 MHz on the GPU, and 970 MHz on the 512 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 128 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 4830 512MB, which has GPU core speed of 575 MHz, and 512 MB of GDDR3 RAM set to run at 900 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 640(128x5) SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 4830 512MB 95 Watts
GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 135 Watts
Difference: 40 Watts (42%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) will be 8% faster than the Radeon HD 4830 512MB in general, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 62080 MB/sec
Radeon HD 4830 512MB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 4480 (8%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) should be a lot (more or less 126%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 4830 512MB. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 41600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 4830 512MB 18400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 23200 (126%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) should be just a bit (more or less 13%) better at FSAA than the Radeon HD 4830 512MB, and able to handle higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 10400 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 4830 512MB 9200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1200 (13%)

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 largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better 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 per second. This number is calculated 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 texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
