GeForce 8800 Ultra vs Radeon RX 460

Intro

The GeForce 8800 Ultra comes with a core clock frequency of 612 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 1080 MHz. It also uses a 384-bit bus, and uses a 90 nm design. It features 128 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 460, which features core speeds of 1090 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 896 SPUs as well as 56 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

GeForce 8800 Ultra 103680 MB/sec
Difference: 8320 (8%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 460 will be much (approximately 56%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce 8800 Ultra. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 460 should be just a bit (more or less 19%) faster with regards to FSAA than the GeForce 8800 Ultra, and also will be able to handle higher screen resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 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 largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, 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 are processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core 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 applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few 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.
