GeForce 8400 GS 512MB vs Radeon HD 4350

Intro

The GeForce 8400 GS 512MB makes use of a 80 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 650 MHz. The DDR2 memory is set to run at a speed of 400 MHz on this specific card. It features 16 SPUs as well as 8 TAUs and 4 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 4350, which comes with a clock speed of 575 MHz and a DDR2 memory frequency of 500 MHz. It also features a 64-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 55 nm design. It is comprised of 80(16x5) SPUs, 8 Texture Address Units, and 4 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, 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 are processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many 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.

Hi, thanks for the excellent comparison. I had ge force 8400 gs (512 MB, GDDR2) installed on my pc. In windows experience rating this card was rated 3.9 (lowest score in that rating as well). Then, I replaced ge force with the ati radeon hd 4350 (1 GB hyper memory, 512 MB DDR3) and, on my surprise, the windows experience rating came down to 3.3. However, it seems that some games that were unplayable with the ge force card I can (with lot of patience) play with the ati card.
So, I remain confused but determined to get some "proper" card asap. Regards

Weird... I wouldn't take the Windows Experience thing too seriously then. 😛
Both those cards are pretty slow though... I personally have a GeForce 9800GT and even though it's quite old now, it's waaaaaaay faster than both of those.

You might need a new power supply though. 🙂

hi i have two cards, 8400 gs 512 and ati radeon 4350 and when i test them in the same machine i found that the 4350 is better than 8400 GS
