GeForce 8800 Ultra vs Radeon RX 550

Intro

The GeForce 8800 Ultra has a core clock speed of 612 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 1080 MHz. It also uses a 384-bit bus, and makes use of a 90 nm design. It is comprised of 128 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 24 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 550, which has GPU clock speed of 1100 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1750 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 512 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

GeForce 8800 Ultra 103680 MB/sec
Difference: 11008 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 8800 Ultra should be a bit (about 11%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon RX 550. (explain)

GeForce 8800 Ultra 39168 Mtexels/sec
Radeon RX 550 35200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 3968 (11%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon RX 550 is superior to the GeForce 8800 Ultra, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

Radeon RX 550 17600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 Ultra 14688 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2912 (20%)

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 maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the 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 are processed per second. This is worked out 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 graphics 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 maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
