GeForce 8800 GT 1GB vs Radeon Vega Frontier Edition

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 1GB makes use of a 65 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 600 MHz. The GDDR3 memory is set to run at a frequency of 900 MHz on this particular card. It features 112 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, which has a GPU core clock speed of 1382 MHz, and 16384 MB of HBM2 RAM running at 1890 MHz through a 2048-bit bus. It also is made up of 4096 Stream Processors, 256 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 437852 (760%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition should be a lot (more or less 953%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce 8800 GT 1GB. (explain)

Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 353792 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 320192 (953%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is the winner, by far. (explain)

Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 88448 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 78848 (821%)

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 largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better 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 processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few 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.
