GeForce 8800 GTX vs Radeon R9 M385X

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTX comes with core speeds of 575 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 768 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 128 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units and 24 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 M385X, which comes with a core clock speed of 1100 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1500 MHz. It also features a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 896 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the Radeon R9 M385X should perform a small bit faster than the GeForce 8800 GTX in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M385X 96000 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 GTX 86400 MB/sec
Difference: 9600 (11%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M385X is much (approximately 67%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce 8800 GTX. (explain)

Radeon R9 M385X 61600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 GTX 36800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 24800 (67%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M385X is a lot (more or less 28%) better at FSAA than the GeForce 8800 GTX, and also should be capable of handling higher resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon R9 M385X 17600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GTX 13800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3800 (28%)

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 maximum amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour 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 fill rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
