GeForce 8800 GT 512MB vs Radeon RX 470 4GB

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 512MB has a GPU clock speed of 600 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR3 memory is set to run at 900 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 112 Stream Processors, 56 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 470 4GB, which uses a 14 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 926 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 1650 MHz on this card. It features 2048 SPUs as well as 128 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This figure is calculated 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 card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number 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 lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
