GeForce 8800 GS vs Radeon R9 M365X

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GS features a GPU core speed of 550 MHz, and the 384 MB of GDDR3 memory runs at 800 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is made up of 96 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 12 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 M365X, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 925 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a speed of 1125 MHz on this model. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the Radeon R9 M365X should be much faster than the GeForce 8800 GS overall. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 GS 38400 MB/sec
Difference: 33600 (88%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M365X will be quite a bit (about 40%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 8800 GS. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 37000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 GS 26400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 10600 (40%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M365X is superior to the GeForce 8800 GS, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 14800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GS 6600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 8200 (124%)

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 information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs 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 fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
