GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) vs Radeon Vega Frontier Edition

Intro

The GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) uses a 80 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 450 MHz. The DDR2 memory works at a frequency of 400 MHz on this particular model. It features 8 SPUs along with 4 Texture Address Units and 2 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1382 MHz. The HBM2 memory works at a frequency of 1890 MHz on this specific model. It features 4096 SPUs along with 256 TAUs and 64 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units 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 in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
