GeForce 8800 GTX vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTX has core clock speeds of 575 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 768 MB of GDDR3 memory. It features 128 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 24 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 M370X, which comes with GPU clock speed of 800 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1125 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 640 Stream Processors, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce 8800 GTX should be just 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 will be a little bit (approximately 15%) more effective at texture 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 using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce 8800 GTX is superior to the Radeon R9 M370X, but only just. (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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video 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 ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of 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.
