GeForce 8800 GT 1GB vs Radeon Vega Frontier Edition

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 1GB uses a 65 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 600 MHz. The GDDR3 memory runs at a speed of 900 MHz on this particular card. It features 112 SPUs as well as 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, which has a clock frequency of 1382 MHz and a HBM2 memory speed of 1890 MHz. It also uses a 2048-bit bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It features 4096 SPUs, 256 TAUs, and 64 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of 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 - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
