GeForce 8800 GT 256MB vs GeForce GT 1030

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 256MB has a GPU core clock speed of 600 MHz, and the 256 MB of GDDR3 RAM runs at 700 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 112 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Compare all that to the GeForce GT 1030, which features a core clock frequency of 1265 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1502 MHz. It also makes use of a 64-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 16 nm design. It is made up of 384 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core 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 per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
