GeForce 8800 GT 256MB vs GeForce GT 1030

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 256MB features a core clock frequency of 600 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 700 MHz. It also features a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 65 nm design. It features 112 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GT 1030, which has a GPU core clock speed of 1265 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1502 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also features 384 Stream Processors, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. 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 rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
