GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) vs Radeon HD 4350

Intro

The GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) features a GPU clock speed of 450 MHz, and the 128 MB of DDR2 RAM is set to run at 400 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is comprised of 8 SPUs, 4 TAUs, and 2 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 4350, which makes use of a 55 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 575 MHz. The DDR2 memory works at a speed of 500 MHz on this model. It features 80(16x5) SPUs along with 8 TAUs and 4 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed 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 card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
