GeForce 8800 Ultra vs Radeon R9 M385X

Intro

The GeForce 8800 Ultra uses a 90 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 612 MHz. The GDDR3 memory runs at a frequency of 1080 MHz on this specific card. It features 128 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 24 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 M385X, which has GPU core speed of 1100 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1500 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 896 Stream Processors, 56 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce 8800 Ultra should be a small bit faster than the Radeon R9 M385X in general. (explain)

GeForce 8800 Ultra 103680 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M385X 96000 MB/sec
Difference: 7680 (8%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M385X should be a lot (approximately 57%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce 8800 Ultra. (explain)

Radeon R9 M385X 61600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 Ultra 39168 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 22432 (57%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M385X is the winner, but it probably won't make a huge difference. (explain)

Radeon R9 M385X 17600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 Ultra 14688 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2912 (20%)

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 (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, 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 that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number 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 filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
