GeForce 8800 GT 256MB vs Radeon HD 4750

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 256MB uses a 65 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 600 MHz. The GDDR3 memory runs at a speed of 700 MHz on this model. It features 112 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the Radeon HD 4750, which has a core clock speed of 730 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 800 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 640(128x5) SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few 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.
