GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) vs Radeon HD 4350

Intro

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

Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 4350, which comes with a core clock speed of 575 MHz and a DDR2 memory frequency of 500 MHz. It also uses a 64-bit memory bus, and uses a 55 nm design. It is comprised of 80(16x5) SPUs, 8 TAUs, and 4 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better 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 can be processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core 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 in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
