GeForce 8800 GTX vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTX features a clock speed of 575 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 900 MHz. It also features a 384-bit memory bus, and uses a 90 nm design. It is made up of 128 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 M370X, which has core speeds of 800 MHz on the GPU, and 1125 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce 8800 GTX should in theory perform a bit faster than the Radeon R9 M370X in general. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GTX 86400 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 72000 MB/sec
Difference: 14400 (20%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 8800 GTX should be a bit (more or less 15%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R9 M370X. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GTX 36800 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 4800 (15%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce 8800 GTX is a better choice, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GTX 13800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1000 (8%)

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 information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, the result should 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, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics 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 most pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
