GeForce 8800 Ultra vs Radeon RX 460 2GB

Intro

The GeForce 8800 Ultra has a GPU clock speed of 612 MHz, and the 768 MB of GDDR3 RAM runs at 1080 MHz through a 384-bit bus. It also features 128 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 24 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 460 2GB, which has clock speeds of 1090 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 896 SPUs as well as 56 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 460 2GB 75 Watts
GeForce 8800 Ultra 171 Watts
Difference: 96 Watts (128%)

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the Radeon RX 460 2GB should theoretically be a bit superior to the GeForce 8800 Ultra overall. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 2GB 112000 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 Ultra 103680 MB/sec
Difference: 8320 (8%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 460 2GB will be much (about 56%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 8800 Ultra. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 2GB 61040 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 Ultra 39168 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 21872 (56%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon RX 460 2GB is the winner, but it probably won't make a huge difference. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 2GB 17440 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 Ultra 14688 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2752 (19%)

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 (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If the card has 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, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card can possibly write 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 clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
