GeForce 8800 GT 512MB vs Radeon HD 4770

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 512MB has core clock speeds of 600 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 512 MB of GDDR3 memory. It features 112 SPUs as well as 56 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 4770, which has GPU core speed of 750 MHz, and 512 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 800 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 640(128x5) Stream Processors, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

The GeForce 8800 GT 512MB is a lot (approximately 40%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon HD 4770. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 4770 24000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 9600 (40%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon HD 4770 will be much (more or less 25%) more effective at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce 8800 GT 512MB, and should be capable of handling higher screen resolutions more effectively. (explain)

Radeon HD 4770 12000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2400 (25%)

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 max amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher 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 one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of 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.
