GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

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

Compare that to the Radeon R9 M370X, which has a core clock speed of 800 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1125 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 640 SPUs, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the Radeon R9 M370X should perform a bit faster than the GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 62080 MB/sec
Difference: 9920 (16%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) should be a lot (more or less 30%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R9 M370X. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 41600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 9600 (30%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M370X is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 10400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2400 (23%)

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 across the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once 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 anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling 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 could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on 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.
