GeForce 8800 GTX vs Radeon R9 M380

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTX has a GPU core 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 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 24 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 M380, which features a GPU core clock speed of 1000 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1500 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 640 SPUs, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R9 M380, in theory, should perform a small bit faster than the GeForce 8800 GTX overall. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M380 will be just a bit (approximately 9%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce 8800 GTX. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M380 will be a small bit (approximately 16%) more effective at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce 8800 GTX, and also should be able to handle higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (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 largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core 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 bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
