GeForce 8800 GT 256MB vs GeForce GT 1030

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 256MB uses a 65 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 600 MHz. The GDDR3 memory works at a frequency of 700 MHz on this specific model. It features 112 SPUs along with 56 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GT 1030, which features clock speeds of 1265 MHz on the GPU, and 1502 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 384 SPUs along with 32 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GT 1030 30 Watts
GeForce 8800 GT 256MB 105 Watts
Difference: 75 Watts (250%)

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the GeForce GT 1030 should in theory be just a bit superior to the GeForce 8800 GT 256MB in general. (explain)

GeForce GT 1030 49152 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 256MB 44800 MB/sec
Difference: 4352 (10%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GT 1030 will be a bit (about 20%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 8800 GT 256MB. (explain)

GeForce GT 1030 40480 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 256MB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6880 (20%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GT 1030 is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GT 1030 20240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 256MB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 10640 (111%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once 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 AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock 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 per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could 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 colour ROPs by the clock 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 is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
