GeForce 8800 GT 512MB vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 512MB uses a 65 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 600 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM runs at a speed of 900 MHz on this model. It features 112 SPUs as well as 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 M370X, which features a core clock speed of 800 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1125 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It features 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R9 M370X should be 25% quicker than the GeForce 8800 GT 512MB overall, due to its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 14400 (25%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 8800 GT 512MB is just a bit (more or less 5%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R9 M370X. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 1600 (5%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M370X is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3200 (33%)

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 megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's 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 many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
