GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) vs Radeon Vega Frontier Edition

Intro

The GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) features clock speeds of 450 MHz on the GPU, and 400 MHz on the 128 MB of DDR2 memory. It features 8 SPUs as well as 4 Texture Address Units and 2 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, which comes with GPU clock speed of 1382 MHz, and 16384 MB of HBM2 memory set to run at 1890 MHz through a 2048-bit bus. It also is made up of 4096 Stream Processors, 256 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, 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 texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines 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 lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
