GeForce 8800 GTX vs Radeon R9 M380

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTX comes with a GPU clock speed of 575 MHz, and the 768 MB of GDDR3 RAM runs at 900 MHz through a 384-bit bus. It also is made up of 128 Stream Processors, 64 TAUs, and 24 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 M380, which features core speeds of 1000 MHz on the GPU, and 1500 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R9 M380 should perform just a bit faster than the GeForce 8800 GTX in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M380 96000 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 GTX 86400 MB/sec
Difference: 9600 (11%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M380 should be just a bit (about 9%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 8800 GTX. (explain)

Radeon R9 M380 40000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 GTX 36800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 3200 (9%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M380 is superior to the GeForce 8800 GTX, though only just barely. (explain)

Radeon R9 M380 16000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GTX 13800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2200 (16%)

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 maximum amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once 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 anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
